Are physical tags still mailed?
« on: March 05, 2017, 09:30:32 PM »
I bought all my stuff online a few weeks ago when I submitted my spring bear apps. I still have yet to receive my physical tags (dear, elk, fall bear, cougar, etc). Normally it doesn't take half this long. Anyone else not receive them yet?

Did you also get the tags for deer and elk or just the license? If not, they would not be sent.

Did you add tags to your order, or licenses only?

Nevermind, I double checked the envelope and it had all the tags.

Yes of course I added all of the tags. I always purchase the full boat (deer, elk, bear, cougar with discounted small game.)

What a joke. Now I have to dink around calling them to see what the hell is going on.

It's a tough time right now for sure.  To be honest I kind of like the new system.  If they can get all the kinks worked out, I see the value.  For now, it's frustrating.

I think I like the new system. It seems like it will be ok once the kinks are worked out.

The new licenses look odd. They don't have much in the way of detail on them. Past ones listed all your previous purchases.
Seems odd to have to choose what fish are listed on your catch record card. Guess maybe this will save plastic.
Also had fits over the Deer and Elk licenses. You used to be able to purchase everything but not "choose" your tag type. You could then choose your tag type at a later date. You cant do that now, so I just left Elk off the purchase until I decide.
The "Party" draw application thing is a bit odd. Having the group leader have to enter up everyone else in the group. Makes it so the group leader needs to know everyone else's WILD ID# ect..... I liked the old system of just handing out the group code better.

I've received all my licenses and tags purchased so far. They've all arrived together in the envelopes as expected.

You can still choose later. I bought the Deer, Elk,Bear, Cougar with discounted SG combo and didn't have to declare my weapon choice for deer and elk yet. I got my bear, cougar and turkey tags in the mail last week without the deer and elk tags.
