In 2006 we drew 5 of the 13 rifle tags when we put in as a group with an average of 5 points.  Shot a 398, 360, 335, and a 315 bulls that year and swallowed one of the tags.  In 2007 we drew Dayton rifle again with 2 points and my buddy shot a 330 bull.  you always have a chance but more points increase the odds but nothing is guaranteed.

With those points I'd focus on wenaha west as first choice.  Dayton gets alot of pressure now from the Indians who rifle hunt it in August.   I think you'd have that unit all to yourself besides the other two guys that also drew.

They have been for several years, Nez pierce from Idaho have been putting the smack down on em for sometime  now, got lots a pics of September rifle killed bulls... pretty sad.
indians are all over the west wenaha too! I seen it first hand! Never heard so many rifle shots in muzzleloader elk season! 😡

Good to hear such great success, and you got to do it with your family.  I will get drawn one of these days and hoping to be able to share my time with my family too.  ]

At 20 points your odds actually start to decrease every year. If you look at the drawing system in 2016 not one person drew Dayton Archery with over 15 points. Will be very interesting to see how many points the successfull applicants had this season.

And thats why its called a drawing.  :chuckle:
I drew last year with 20 points.
With only a handful of tags the average to draw doesn't mean anything. It gets peoples hoping  that they're getting close.
