My online results only showed Tieton Sheep alternate.  I may be wrong but I've not heard of anyone else drawing alternate this year on this forum.

Means you are the first loser, but have a chance to be a winner.. :chuckle:  My son drew a Moose alternate with 2 points when he was 10.  Nothing came of it.  Everyone bought their tags....

What you got in the mail must be in error then.

It will be interesting to hear what the folks in Olympia have to say.

Bummer man. I know how you feel. I was selected as an alternate for moose a few years back. Kinda makes ya wonder if that will be as close as you'll ever get doesn't it?

Just to save the heartache, why don't they just not tell you that you are an alternate.  They should just keep that to themselves then if by chance you were able to get the tag, just notify you by mail.  Sorry man but my sheep draw said NOT SELECTED and i think i came out better than you did.  At least i will be able to sleep till next year. :chuckle:

I was selected as alternate for goat. Yesterday I got a message from the wdfw saying the cards they mailed out might have errors printed on them. I was supposed to disregard these cards as they would be sending me new ones with the correct info. This could be what happened to yours as well.

I'd probably die of a heart attack if I drew a sheep tag.

WDFW outsourced the green mailers, Mine is an obvious mistake as they do not have deer alternate. I faxed my card to Olympia, they are investigating.

did they indicate over the phone what the intent of the Alternate draw was for?

They said it means if the person who was selected does not purchase you would be next in line.

Olympia called me back today, basically said that all 38 OIL alternates had some type of mistake on their green cards, they are mailing out new ones.  She verified that I am confirmed alternate Tieton sheep though.  In all fairness this was not a WDFW mistake, their outsourced partners are the cause.
