So I am new to the state and moved here a little over two years ago. I have never submitted for special hunts because I am also a new hunter. Last year I tried my hand at deer but didnít put much work into it. This year I was told I could apply for multi season tags and hunt the whole season with my bow and rifle. So in March I applied with 0 points for both deer and elk multi season tags. Well results came out and I was selected for both. So I figured I would really put in the effort this season and get something. Well here I sit reading yíalls comments about max points and never drawing the ms elk tag. I put my heart and soul into it this year miles (300+ Miles in my boots alone) and days upon days in the field. Now look at the fruits of my labor.

There is still time.  :chuckle:
Yep to fill my deer tag maybe with the blacktails that run through my neighborhood. But I have spent to much time and money to go anywhere else. Plus I deploy next August for at least 18 months and time with family is a must. Maybe in two seasons from now Iíll actually fill a tag if I can actually get stationed back here. But this season is looking lost.

Good point. Is 2018 the new cycle for seasons?

Yes, at this point we have no idea what the seasons will be the next three years.

I drew this year and have had a hoot. Did not take An animal however. I do not regret my  decisions . It was fun being able to experience every season. I will do it again when allowed

Yes, at this point we have no idea what the seasons will be the next three years.

Applications are due March 31st and we most likely wonít know what the seasons will be at that time. The final proposals should be out but they most likely wonít be finalized at that time.

Not me.  I'm putting that money out of state.  Planning to hunt Wyoming and Idaho for elk.  I'll pick up a Washington tag only if I have time between those hunts.

no me, took forever to draw the first time and don't want to wait ten years to draw again.  I think MS tags have a curse on them anyways-weird stuff happens in the universe when you get a MS tag (emergencies at work, home, car dies, injuries).  >:(

I'll have 7 points this year. I was thinking about offering to let someone apply with me if they really wanted to boost their odds but really odds would just go from horrible to horrible...I think I'm done with multi elk.
Have you called your district biologist to voice your concerns?
Have you attended a public meeting on season setting?
You are getting exactly what you deserve from WDFW

I have had the multi season elk tag twice and tagged out in archery season both times. Had quality archery bull tags both years but it was nice knowing there was options for filling the freezer later.
