2017 Spring Bear Apps
« on: January 20, 2017, 01:56:21 PM »
Just spoke with someone from DFW, and while 2017 licenses should go on sale either today or Monday, we won't be able to submit spring bear apps until the middle of February. Deadline will still be 2/28, so we will have just two weeks to do it.

WTH is going on with WDFW.  This is just nonsense.   :bash: :bash: :bash: :bash: :bash:

In all fairness, if you can't get an app submitted within two weeks, you have problems. :twocents:

It's a new system, and hopefully they get the kinks out sooner rather than later.

Wait..... I still can't log in to the Wdfw system without having to purchase something!!  It goes straight to that page... Sure was glad they called me back so I could put in my harvest report after they told me "Wait 7 to 10 days and everything should be good to go" and of course it still didn't work...  :bash:  :bash: :bash: I wonder if I can delete my account and start over??

I can confirm this. I was having issues getting signed into the new interface. After several phone calls, etc, it finally accepted my user name and password. WDFW did mention that they do control when the deadline is for the spring bear application and that may be affected if they cannot get the site online in time.

I just got the following notification on my Point Hunter App, but still don't see the 2017 licenses up when I login to the system. Hopefully soon.  :tup:

You'd go all the way to Wyoming to hunt Turkey? Working on a slam?

The turkeys in Wyoming taste better.   :chuckle:

Actually, I am just opted in for Wyoming notifications, and they don't allow you to select which species you want notifications on.

After you select big game you then have to select next year's documents. It will either be at the top, or at the very bottom if you are on a mobile device.

Slightly off topic (sorry!).

I got the deer/elk/etc. license.  Will I select wet side or east side for elk later on?  I didn't see that option.

thanks Bob

As for the elk choices and weapon choices it propted me during the checkout under the survey portion.  I was able to make my choices then.

During the check out it froze and I didn't think that I had actually bought anything until I got the email receipt.   :dunno:

If I didn't put in last Spring but did the previous year will my 1 pt from 2015 still be their? Do they ever go away or not until you draw? And lastly if I have my father put in for a partnership tag with me where we both draw can I use that 1pt?
