One way would be to look at your history under your Wild ID.  If nothing else you should be able to count.    I actually don't know if you lose your point sin Washington like you do many other states.

http://wdfw.wa.gov/hunting/permits/special/results.php

should get you there IF you applied for tags this past year... I'm unsure if it will show your points if you did not apply for a special permit this past season, however. Sorry I cannot be of more service!
I am not opposed to golf, for I suspect it keeps armies of the unworthy from discovering deer.

No you don't lose your points. Not supposed to anyway. Just do as boneaddict says and go look at your history. To do that, sign in as if you were applying for a special permit. You'll need your wild i.d. number. Try this:  https://fishhunt.dfw.wa.gov/wa/specialhunt

 Your still in good shape with 7, you should get drawn any time, depending on what your putting in for. I will have 9 going in, I'm hoping I don't have to max out to get drawn :(.

 I was thinking it was 12, crap I may never get drawn :'(.

 I think if I get to 14 I may have to bribe them. :chuckle: :chuckle:. I wonder what the record is for being stuck on max?

I'm also wondering what it means to "max out."  ???   There is no maximum number of points a person can accumulate.

I have very little faith in the point system. I see so many people get drawn and redrawn with 0 or 1 point.

There is no threshold for max points, at least not yet....it has been discussed to cap it.   When folks claim they are stuck at max it means they have been putting in since the beginning and have as many points as possible, but never get drawn.  So, I have max points at sheep, means when I don't get drawn again this year, I'll have one more and that is the new max.

 I absolutely swear I read in this forum more than one person posted the max was 12 (they thought). I never really looked into it, but until now I've never heard of anyone over 12.

Bone's right. if the draws have been going on for 14 years then the highest number of points anyone can have leaving poacher points out of the equation is 14.
"max" in this context is probably not the best word to use because at this point there is no cap on points.

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

You guys need to put in for draws that are easier to get if you want a doe tag.  Take a look at my history for deer permits; SELECTED 4 yrs in a row from 2001 - 2004.
May I always be the kind of person my dog thinks I am.
