For the OP, and everybody else unhappy with the system, what is YOUR solution?

 It's easy to sit back and bitch, not saying that the OP is, how about laying out your better system, here http://hunting-washington.com/smf/index.php/topic,214387.msg2854553.html#msg2854553 is your chance.
My solution? Get rid of it all together ! Or you pick like ID 1 oil tag and no bucks and bull or you can apply for bucks and Bulls and no oil. When you draw deer or elk you sit out a year too!

It's easy more tags.

I think it's only about $50 for a non resident to apply for moose, sheep, or mountain goats here. Compare that to Idaho. Would cost me about $2,200 to apply for moose.

Read this it will help you make accurate statements.

That's okay, I already looked it up in the 2017 pamphlet. Yeah, I was thinking of when it used to be only about $50. It's double that now and someone corrected my statement soon after I posted it.

A correction with out education is just being an azz. I posted the link to be helpful.
Long story short WA has a tone of opportunity for hunting and gives very limited number of tags. I Would be in favor of a draw only and do away with the general hunt all together.  Late archery season and muzzle loader is very stressful on pregnant mommas.  The list goes on and on.

I'm so confused.
It's luck no matter what. You can draw a quality deer tag with no points it's possible, not plausible but possible. The more time I spend on this site the more I think most people on it are wolves in sheep's clothing. It's not fair I didn't get my trophy, sounds like something a lefty would say.  :'( You wanna shoot a big bull go to Montana but you better put your big boy pants on cause it's still work.
Lead em if they're running.

Late archery and muzzle loader is very stressful on pregnant mamma's. That sound's like something Bernie Sanders would say.
Lead em if they're running.
