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!
The true eye sees not the despair of its victims, only the elegance of equilibrium. It's a demonstration of superior judgement.

Never mistake motion for action.

Yes.... I'm a hater!

Mountain goat.
My dad and I drew as partners with Zero points.
Of course back then there were no points.
Perhaps those were the good old days of WA hunting.

Around 85' I think.

And I bet they had the results out by the end of July as well.

My dad drew goat rocks with only 2 points and shot a real nice billy about 15 years ago.  He's patiently waiting for his sheep tag next:)

I drew a goat tag in 1997 first year I ever put in for it. I took a 9 7/8 billy out of the Smith Creek unit, he'd make Boone and Crockett honorable mention we rough scored him very conservatively, he was a yellow tinged old billy goat. It was a really great hunt, I ended up having to rope up and rope him as well to keep us both from going over because we were both on the side of a cliff.
The next year they went to the point system and made it a OIL tag and every year since then I have put in for another goat tag.

I drew my goat tag this year with 9 points. Please don't punch me.

" 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
