By what the harvest reports say one gay got any ram with 4 points and one guy got goat with 6 that was last year. I should be able to pull a tag with 9 ;)

Nice!

I feel for the fellas with tons of points that don't get drawn year after year, but it's pretty damn cool to have a shot just starting to get in. I'd not put in if there wasn't any chance at all for 15+ years.

Looking at that list makes me love Idaho's system that much more!

That being said my dad was fortunant last year to draw goat with far less than max points.

Yeah, but if you have 20+ points you almost have a 1% chance of drawing.  Start putting in at age 15 you will have 20 points by age 35.  If you haven't drawn by then, by the time you are 85 you would have had a 50% chance of drawing a tag - of course assuming no point creep.  Add in point creep and you are probably at 15%.

They should just run a traditional lottery for OIL tags.

I think if they kept the app fee the same but had to front the 300+ dollars or so for the tag if drawn and get a refund it would drop applicants but wdfw would lose a bunch of money so wont ever happen... I have 20 points at age 29 and most likely will never draw any oil permit before my hunting career is over, but i do like the fact everyone has a chance.

At your age and your points, I am pretty confident you will at least draw 1 OIL tag before you're too old to hunt, whatever age that is😆

I hope your right, have one less for goat and under ten for moose which i have less desire to hunt.  All ya can do is play the game!

@GurrCentral, any comments   :chuckle: :chuckle: :chuckle:

Once upon a time a 17yr old young man drew a coveted WA sheep tag with 3 points.....he is still grateful for all of the knowledge and help he acquired from a few guys crazy about bighorns! At the top of that list is some yahoo who goes by the name of DOUBLELUNG!! HAHA

This was not a youth tag.

Aaron drew with 6 points and scored on the current World Record Cali.

And the perfect storm! That record will stand for a loooooooong time!
Embrace the hate.
