I feel like I just looked at my Washington tags " Not Selected ".

Side question if I didn't draw deer can I still apply for Antelope  ?
Title: Re: Montana results.
Post by: Stein on April 22, 2019, 01:24:37 PM
The way I understand it is the preference point is applied before the draw.  Thus, the preference pool is given the tags first and then any left would go to the 0 pt pool.  So, if you don't buy a point your odds aren't great.
Title: Re: Montana results.
Post by: Rainier10 on April 22, 2019, 01:31:32 PM
I think buying the point is pretty much a guarantee.

I've always done the preference point and always drawn.  This year I went in with a different group and the leader didn't buy the point so none of us could.  I mentioned that he should call and change his application and buy the point.  He said it wouldn't be an issue and we didn't need the point.  Looks like he was wrong.

I would love to hear if anyone bought the point and didn't draw, my guess is no.

Yup.  Something like 75% of non-res tags go to pref point applicants first, then the remaining tags go to non-pref point applicants. 

I think the pref point applicants are guaranteed to draw unless the quantity of pref point applicants is greater than 75% of the non res tags allocated.

Last year we didn't draw with zero pref points.  This year we paid the extra $50 for 1 pref point and our party drew.

Now to figure out where we want to hunt this go around.

I don't get the logic of shelling out $1k but not adding $50 to it to more than double your odds of drawing unless you are only looking at going every 2-3 years.

10th year in a row that Iíve drawn and Iíve never purchased the preference point.  Apparently Iím lucky in MT, which makes sense since I never draw $&*# in WA so it averages out.  I had 3 friends not draw though😞.

Yes on the deer elk combo. Dont think we bought the point last year, but bought one this year. I have a group of friends that have drawn every year since 2010. Guess we're just not that lucky.

Interesting.  Sorry about your luck but don't feel as bad not buying the point and not getting drawn.  Sounds like even if we had we may not have drawn.

I feel like I just looked at my Washington tags " Not Selected ".

Side question if I didn't draw deer can I still apply for Antelope  ?

Yes, looks like Antelope deadline is June 1 along with B tags

We drew deer combo.  Party of 2, both of us had 1 pref point.

Did anyone draw who did not have a pref point?

Yep. First time app big game combo selected. Now I just have to figure out where to go.

I not only drew the big game combo but also cashed in my points for both deer and elk! Archery elk tag and mule deer! I'm speechless right now.

nice. what tags? We drew combo tag but returned elk since we didn't draw which was our intention.

I drew a breaks bull tag and a western MT rifle rut tag.  :tup: I had also set my application up to refund my elk tag if I didn't draw.

Nice, what breaks? We applied for breaks archery last two years and didn't draw. This year since we are gonna be in Oregon during elk we just applied for a breaks rifle tag that had super low odds.

Post by: Stein on April 24, 2019, 08:08:57 AM
I was just thinking the same thing.  For those going for the first time, make sure to understand the regs.  The antler restrictions vary a bunch and I can often cross a road and shoot or not shoot cows or spikes and many of the units are pretty small where I can hunt 3 in the same day without driving more than a couple miles.  There are also different regulations for whitetail and mulies in the same unit.  Finally, there is a brow tine issue with elk that is different than most states.

The good news is that coming from WA, it will all look much better.

I took the boys back to Montana for college in 2010 and they were able to get the whole resident package as students for $75.00 (and believe it or not the college had a gun locker in the dorm). Having hunted only Washington and mostly the western part of the state they both promptly shot the first two-point they saw not realizing that they had the real potential for a mature buck. They learned their lesson and after that those deer get a pass. After college they both stayed in Montana and now they take me hunting.

I have lots of time to hunt so for you other tag holders, as soon as you fill your tags give me a hint on where to go. ;)

I am guessing a bunch of us were online at 4am our time/5amMST this morning.  I was on and submitting my payment at 4:16, system was really slow.  Got an "Internal Error" message. Logged on again and tried again two more times all before 4:40 am.  Credit card shows three pending charges but website shows no active tag.

Call MFW and the system crashed, too many people trying to get tags.  Message says all 393 tags sold before  630MST/530 our time.

My buddy clicked submit payment at 4:04 and got the same message.  Logged back on and when he got it a second time he gave up.  His card has two pending charges but no tag for him either.

The representative that I talked to confirmed that neither one of us got a tag even though our cards showed a charge pending.

She said there were 8,000 more applications this year than they had tags.

I personally blame Trump.  I never had this problem when Obama was President.  :chuckle:

My buddy and I both just got this email.

Good morning,

 

On Monday, May 6th , Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks encountered  a complication with the purchase of some Surplus Elk Combination Licenses.  For some customers, an error occurred that prevented them from purchasing the license at the final stage of the transaction.  During this process, multiple authorizations may have been placed on your account. The credit card processer is currently working to release all pending purchase authorizations.

 

FWP has identified customers who encountered this error while processing their payment between 5:00 and 5:30 am, MST.   These identified customers will be given the opportunity to finalize the purchase the Elk Combination License they attempted to purchase before the licenses were sold out.

 

You have been identified as one of the customers that meet this criteria.  FWP Licensing Staff will be contacting you by phone over the next several days informing you of how you can complete your transaction.

 

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.

Thank you.


There were 551 other email addresses on the email list and only 393 tags so I am not sure how that is going to work.

More to come I am sure.

There are two alternant lists.  a deer/elk combo list and a deer combo list.  Preference will be given to those who applied in the original draw and didn't get drawn.  With that said, anyone can put there name on one or the other list (you cant put yourself on both).  If you applied for a deer/elk license then you will need to make sure you are on that list for the alternant list.  And the same with the deer license only.  Chances of drawing a license on the alternant list are close to zero if you didn't originally apply for any license at all, or if you put your name on the alternant list for a combo license that you didn't originally apply for.  For example, if you applied for the deer/elk combo and didn't draw and then put yourself on the deer only combo alternant list you will not get a tag until all of the unsuccessful deer combo only people get a license.  and the list never goes that deep.

Doh!  Their site did crash!!!  The big difference between MT and WA though is that they are going to be honorable and offer all that tried to buy a licensee between 0500 - 0530 an option to complete their purchase even though it puts them over their target allotment.   Seems they don't think the are so damn smart that they no every elk by name and are able to handle a bit of ambiguity in their count.  IMHO WA would never have taken this route.

I agree.

I was told that there were 8,000 more applicants than tags this year.  That tells me that not everyone that tried and now goes on the alt list is going to draw and nobody new on the list is going to draw.

The service rep I was talking to said that they had more sales than tags before they could shut the whole thing down.  Said they were going to have meetings and try to figure out what to do about it.  I asked if I was in the pool that got a tag and was told no, it was cut off at 5:30.  I said I got an error at 5:22 after I entered my billing info.  I was told sorry, you didn't get one.  Then got the email above today saying that I would be contacted.

Nice that they are going to make it right but it kind of sucks that they are going over their tag allocation to do it.  My guess is this overage is going to cut into the tags they offer on the alternate list making it tougher for those on that list to draw.

The morning the results came out for MT, I was just saying how I have never drawn an elk tag in 21 years of applying.  Points in every western state and always do NM and ID too. Can't draw a tag.  Heck only drawn 2 deer tags at that, let alone elk in all that time. Then looked and bam first one haha.
