What weapon?
:fire.:

" 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 say you feel fairly confident in drawing, because you have 9 points? Well then you must not understand how bad your odds really are. The Pearrygin had 1854 applications for 15 permits last year for odds of 1 in 124. That means you should expect to draw once in 124 years of applying. If you've only applied for 9 years you have a long way to go. The problem is there are lots of people with just as many points as you have, or more. Many people will have 16 points this year. So your 9 points really doesn't help you a whole lot. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but it's the truth. If you want a little better odds apply for Chewuch. It was 1 in 66 last year, so almost twice as much chance of drawing as the Pearrygin.

not totally right
Washington's system places a multiplier on the points. The number of points is squared and it is this number of random numbers that are issued to the application (or number of cards in the barrel). If a person applies for an elk permit for the first time, they have one card in the barrel. If a person has built up two points, they have four cards in the barrel. If a person has three points built up, nine cards are in the barrel and so on.

Placing a multiplier on the points more noticeably increases the chances of being selected over someone who is a new applicant or was recently awarded a permit.
