lol, wait, that's not funny!!!!   22 points for quality elk, wasn't the toughest draw either, Dayton rifle.  I also have 22 points for bull, ghost this year.  When I had 20 for bull I didn't draw either.  Wdfw really does hate me.

In 2016 there were 8 applications with 26 points or more for Quality Elk, and none drew.

FYI/FWIW
The maximum number of points a person can have in any category is 22, (that includes the point for 2017)

The only way to have more points than that is to have them awarded to you by WDFW, (turn in poacher, etc.) Poaching bonus points are only given in deer and elk categories, very hard to get bonus points in OIL's

If there's a max, they need to fix this.

There is no max. The system has been in place since 1996 (22 seasons) so there are few with more points than that.

point system has only been going for 22 or 23 years so the "max" points you could have is 22 or 23 or whatever it is. If you have more, you did some good deed for wdfw and they rewarded you with points.

Thanks for the replies... we talk about looser lounges and non draws... I have 25 bull and 25 quality bull points... I took the ghost for quality bull but can't draw with 25.. from what I see I'm in the top 9 people in the state... maybe next year. I went 0-13.

I know a gal that drew a quality bull tag with 28 points this year. She was awarded 10 points some years back for turning in a poacher. Should be a fun hunt with the smoke pole.  :tup:

Got that right.Im at 18 points will have 19 going in next year for all OIL permits. Thinking about going Idaho draw instead next year. I cant justify to continue to put in here in WA when high point holders odds of drawing actually go down every year

When I think back I just laugh, when I had 8 points I called a biologist who worked the Margaret unit.  I thought for sure w 8 points I was drawing, no doubt!!!  Lol, 14 years later still trying, of course I changed my choice from the Margaret to the blues when I hit 10 points.  I was 23 or 24 last time I drew a quality elk permit, 48 in a couple weeks. Sad for a resident

A few people probably drew margaret with 6pts at the time and have drawn a blues tag since then.

The hard core Idaho/Montana hunters will probably cringe or cyber attack me when I say this....But..... lets say screw you to this state and go somewhere else! Like Idaho with no Points for Deer / Elk........Or MT where you can buy the combo tag damn near OTC now......I dont have nearly the points some of you guys have and its depressing for me that I'm still 8-10 yrs away! Or more.....

NR special pernits are limited to 10% or less in most states so your odds aren't always better. Now idaho residents have pretty good odds at some good tags! I bet there's quite a few tags in idaho that are better than washington quality hunts and easier to draw, even as a NR.
