Issues while purchasing tags?
« on: May 14, 2017, 10:57:56 PM »
So I bought my tags today and put in for my permits. I noticed I got emailed a receipt for my tags and I was charged the additional $10 for not filing my report for last year. When I created my account it shows I did not submit my elk report for last year and also same for my wife when in fact I know that's bs because I did my tags, wife's, brothers, dads, moms reporting at the end of archery season. When trying to submit my picks for second deer, I got an error stating I don't have the right tag (modern firearm). Well duh I purchased a archery tag and was never asked either or. Called the store up they couldn't help me. I will be calling the wildlife department tomorrow. Did anyone else have similar issues. It pisses me off that this state can't get their crap together. Just another reason in a long list why I'll be looking in Idaho when I move in 2-3 years.

yup similar issue, wouldn't let me pick which weapon or side of state for my dads deer and elk. Calling today as well.  I would suggest you guys put in now for permits, don't wait till the last couple days because you could experience problems and we don't need a delay in permit results.

Ok, new system sucks again!  Just got off the phone with them, I have to go to a dealer and have them cancel my dads deer and elk tags so they can do the process again!  The guy said it's been happening a bit with the new site.  What a pain, this years draw is going to be a mess!   I bet we don't get results till July!

To think these guys get a fair amount of money to run this process also.

I just bought my deer and elk tags, and special permit applications. All went well until I clicked "Submit" and the "Oh Deer" screen displayed. I called WDFW and they said the order went through fine: it just has "hiccups from time to time and displays that message."

How in the heck can anyone have confidence in a system that displays error messages when it shouldn't?

I received both my Deer and Elk tags with no Weapon choice stated, and elk doesn't have which Eat/West stated. 

I can't submit my apps because of it.  I know I selected Modern for both and East for Elk,  but I guess it didn't go thru.
Hopefully I don't have to pay a dealer fee to have it fixed

I just purchased a deer tag and special permit applications for my son. For his deer tag it allowed checking all three: modern, archery, and muzzleloaders. It should only allow one. Obviously some sloppy coding and testing.

Just went back to Fredmeyer today and they cancelled everything and reprinted everything for me. I'll re submit my draws today! I thought this was a single incident but apparently I was wrong, geeze!

I just got done setting up my uncle's new WDFW account and purchasing his deer license, and submitting an application for an antlerless deer permit. All went smoothly, just as my purchase for my own licenses and applications did a couple weeks ago. I guess the only thing that could go wrong now is that they don't send him the correct license and/or tag. Really liking the new system.
