Put in for your permits sooner than later!!!
« on: May 18, 2017, 08:15:04 AM »
Don't be that guy that waits till the last day to submit!!  This year will have it's problems and if you wait till the last day you could very well have issues that need to be delt with after the deadline.  There is a good chance this years results will be delayed. The lady at wdfw  that finally fixed my dads issues with his tags told me to please, please, please don't wait.  Don't be that anchor in our system!!!  never could understand why people wait, your name doesn't go to the top of the pile!!   Rant over

I suppose the only people hurt by waiting to long to submit, are the people that waited to long to submit. Am I wrong? I don't think there's a grace period.
I hunt, therefore I am.... I fish, therefore I lie.

I am waiting on putting elk permits in right now. Want to see what happens for me and my buddy in Colorado and Utah if possible before putting in. Have all my other permits in but holding off on elk until we find out if we have other hunts to plan. That's my excuse  :chuckle:

10 bucks says there will be this year. I would also venture a guess that we may not see results until July.  :twocents:

I think you're onto something.  We haven't had a re-draw in a while?  Shall we bet on that Woodchuck. :chuckle:

Not sure if it did this for everyone. But when I submitted it would not let me choose my hunt choices until WDFW had the payment from my credit card. Some reason this took 2 days to clear, in the meantime the system had let me purchase the hunts but NOT select the GMU's that I wanted to put in for until the system updated.

I would certainly throw 10 down that we do not see results  until after Father's Day.

I'm gonna go out on a limb and say we get results sooner than we are use to. There will be no grace period for procrastinators and WDFW will save a little face for the complications already experienced this year.

Vegas currently has the over/under for number of draws at 2.2.

Unfortunately, I think you will be correct. Everything else has been late, and the permit deadline is a week later than it was last year.

June 16th will be the date this year. My prediction. No issues with multi-season and spring bear.

What your rant fails to account for is the complicated nature of drawing for multiple family members and group hunting members, both here and out of state.  The out of state issue is the most complicated part.  Most folks don't have enough vacation time to dedicate to a Utah bull hunt and a special bull hunt here in Washington, for example.  So it sure would be nice to know the Utah hunt results (or name your state here) before applying in Washington.  That is just one example I am sure of many of why some folks are forced to wait.
I know I've lost it, let me know if you come across it

Somehow I let you guys convince me......
Since the draws started, I was probably the first in and never drew anything.  This year I did multi elk at the last minute and actually drew.  Was going to do the rest of the draws last minute to test my newest theory, but figured with snafus likely, I should just get them submitted.   :o

Why is it requiring me to submit weapon and location when I want to do points only for Elk and Deer SP?

:yeah: At least that's how it worked for me.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

:yeah:
You've always had to pick your weapon and side of the state(for elk). That's not new.
: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

I don't blame anybody for taking full advantage of rules,like trying to wait for other draws in other states,or hunting deer on both sides of the state.When you take advantage too much you end up having to choose which side of the state your going to hunt like elk. :twocents:
