Title: Leftover Multi Season Deer
Post by: bigdub257 on July 25, 2021, 05:36:01 PM
Does anybody have any intel on when the state is going to sell these leftover tags?  Couldn't find anything on their stellar website.
Title: Re: Leftover Multi Season Deer
Post by: Ridgeratt on July 25, 2021, 05:44:05 PM
I believe that the  sale for people who drew is the 30th of July.  So nothing until after the cutoff date.

It's going to depend on how many are left, they can either sell them over the counter or do a second chance draw. There won't be any notice until the date passes for 1st raffle winners to buy theirs.

This is the first time I have ever heard of a second chance draw? Anyone else ever hear of this before?
Anyone interested donít slack on buying asap for leftovers. Sold out fast last year.

I can't remember where I read it, possibly in the regulations, but I recall that this year it would be a second draw for the leftover multi season tags, rather than an open sale.

Edit: I just checked the regulations again and I couldn't confirm the redraw. The regs say the leftovers may be sold on a first come, first served basis.

They did it last year because of Covid.  Wouldn't be surprised to see it again, since WDFW offices seem to be still closed to walk-in.  Knocked my odds down of getting one, but seems a lot fairer way of doing it.  I've purchased the MS deer already, but would love to have the MS elk.

Can you buy them from any licensing place such as Big 5 once they go on sale?

You can if they are available. You have to bring in your deer tag and turn the old tag in.

last year you had to turn your tag in to the game Dept either by computer or your phone before you get the multi season tag , they would not exchange at the counter

I've done it several times now, even pre Covid.  The state issues an email, if you're on their email list, about August 10th or so, and they have a sale on August 17th-18th.  You have to have applied for the special tag to be eligible to purchase the leftover tag.

I went to my local tag getting store and waited in a short line.  One older gentleman had been there since the store opened that morning.  He said he just about get's his multi season elk tag every year doing it this way.  When I'm retired I'm gonna be like that guy.  Then go fishin.

Last year I walked into a convenience store bought the multi season tag and walked out with two deer tags in my pocket. So I donít believe this is true. Although they are supposed to take your deer tag from you.

They might draw left over deer tags? Then what? They sell leftovers after those people donít buy them?
Title: Re: Leftover Multi Season Deer
Post by: D-Rock425 on August 06, 2021, 10:52:09 AM
Have never heard of a left over draw here in WA.  If wdfw. Would make people front the money for the tags like other states this wouldn't be an issue and the people that don't really want the tags wouldn't be appling.

. They wonít do another drawing. All they care about now is that they sell them and they get their filthy money. Thatís all they care about. All of the tags will be sold over the counter like in all the years past.
Title: Re: Leftover Multi Season Deer
Post by: buckfvr on August 06, 2021, 10:57:33 AM
An idea here, multi-season permit application fee of $25.  If you get drawn and dont buy the tag, application fee forfeited.  If you are drawn and buy the tag, the $25 application fee is applied to the cost of the tag.  Also, if you are drawn, you have 30 days to purchase.

This would eliminate most of the problem as it weeds out those not serious about the permit.  Draw, one and done.  No second chances. The whole permit system needs to be streamlined.   :twocents:

Title: Re: Leftover Multi Season Deer
Post by: bigdub257 on August 12, 2021, 04:40:58 PM
I just spoke to a rep from the game dept.  He told me the leftover multi season deer tags will go on sale next Wednesday (specific details TBD). I believe he said there were approximately +/- 2300 available. Purchase can be made online or at a license vendor.  A press release with all of the details should be out in the next couple of days.

As for leftover multi season elk, he indicated that the department would be contacting the runners up from the original drawing and offering them for purchase.

Good luck everyone!
Title: Re: Leftover Multi Season Deer
Post by: TriggerMike on August 12, 2021, 05:18:14 PM
IIRC, 2300 is about the normal number. Sounds like business as usual again this year with the exception of being able to buy them online.

Thanks for the update!

Not that it's a huge deal, but if you buy a leftover tag, do you lose your point(s)?
Title: Re: Leftover Multi Season Deer
Post by: carpsniperg2 on August 13, 2021, 11:09:35 AM
No you do not lose your points if you buy one. Only when you draw.
Title: Re: Leftover Multi Season Deer
Post by: fly-by on August 13, 2021, 11:56:42 AM
Do you have to surrender your original tag on the spot or do you just get the option to buy and exchange?  I can't find mine and will need to get a replacement beforehand if they require simultaneous surrender.

Regs are pretty clear on the procedures for the leftover tags.

"Left Over Permits.  Permits not purchased by successful applicants by  August 1, may be sold to non-selected applicants  on a first-come, first-served basis. The Department  will announce when the remaining tags will be
available. To ensure you receive the announcement,  keep your email address updated in your profile."

I don't believe there will be a second draw, but, that would work for me  :tup:

They did last year. Not a ďsecond drawĒ they just offer the tags to the runner ups in the drawing. Your drawn in order from 1st to last.

When they do the draw everyone is ranked in the order they drew. Let's say you were number 16 but there were only 15 permits. This would mean you didn't draw a permit but you would be next in line.

I called yesterday asking about the leftover tags and the guy I spoke with said they are not sure what they are going to do yet as far as another draw or first come. He said applicants will be getting an email mid August stating what they are going to be doing.

Post by: konradcountry on August 14, 2021, 12:27:13 PM
The elk is really hard to get.

A few years ago I stood in line for a chance at deer and everyone in front of me was waiting for elk. Only the first guy was able to get one. He had been there for at least an hour before the store opened. 

Be careful about the store you pick if you are doing elk. If they are clueless about the process then you will have zero chance. They have to be there waiting with your info when the system goes online.

As someone already said it is only OTC if you applied but were not selected. Even if there are extras after the rush they won't sell them to you.

2600 deer tags leftover. 128 elk tags. Deer tags go on sale at 10 AM this Wednesday.
Title: Re: Leftover Multi Season Deer
Post by: buggy on August 16, 2021, 03:51:34 PM
Here is the entire email,


"2,600 surplus Multi-season deer tags available Aug. 18
Deer hunters who bought a Multi-season tag application earlier this year but were not selected in the April drawing will have their chance to buy one of 2,600 remaining Multi-season deer tags starting at 10 a.m. Wednesday, Aug. 18.
 
Available on a first-come, first-served basis, the tags can be purchased online or at an authorized Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife license dealer. WDFW regional offices and headquarters in Olympia remain closed to in-person license sales.
Hunters who want to buy a deer Multi-season tag must have purchased a 2021 deer Multi-season special hunt application in order to buy a Multi-season tag.

If you already have your 2021 general season tag, you wonít need to call WDFW to cancel it, but under state law you will need to surrender it to the license dealer or mail it to WDFW headquarters before the opening of the hunting season.

When you purchase your Multi-season tag, you will be asked if you already have a general season tag, and if so, whether you are surrendering it to the dealer or mailing it to WDFW headquarters.

Multi-season deer tags are $139.10. Tag costs are the same for residents and non-residents.

There will not be a purchase deadline for deer Multi-season tags; they will remain on sale until the tag limit is reached. Hunters who purchase a Multi-season tag will not lose points in their Multi-season special hunt application categories.

Hunters with Multi-season tags can hunt all three weapon choices (modern firearm, muzzleloader, archery), season permitting, until their tag is filled.
What about elk?
The next sequential 128 hunters on the original official draw list of elk Multi-season tags will have an opportunity to buy those remaining tags. The existing official draw list from April is being used to prevent large group gatherings at retail locations during the COVID-19 pandemic and to keep the opportunity fair.

Elk hunters can also login on the WILD licensing system after 10 a.m. Wednesday, Aug. 18, to see if they are eligible to buy an elk Multi-season tag. The 128 winners of the remaining elk Multi-season tags will receive an email from WDFW notifying them that they are eligible to buy a Multi-season elk tag."

I only applied to have the option to buy it now. Usually I would buy it prior to spec apps to apply in different categories but my points are low due to drawing and it wasn't worth it then. Now I can expand my season after having not drawn anything.

I think there is reason for this,  alot of the ones that backout of purhcasing the multi season have been drawn for a controlled hunt and the multi season is point less, also some people do it to just built up points for the right oppurtunity to use it.  this may not account for 2600 but definately adds up

Post by: HUNT JR on August 18, 2021, 09:09:28 AM
I think a lot of people buy it just for the option if they draw. The app is cheap and once drawn you have a long time to decide to buy it. Schedules/work/family all changes a lot in those few months and cause people to choose other hunts. I know I apply for it every year because I want to hunt archery general deer but apply for rifle with my worthless 17 points.

Apps are due early in the year for multi. If somebody draws a couple other tags (including out of state) that conflict with the extra Washington seasons...no point in paying $140+

As has already been mentioned, if I drew a quality tag then I would probably return the MS.

Dealer's computer was also going super slow. at 10:15 the line hadn't moved, dealer was still working on guy #1 and I still had the spinning thing, so I said screw it and left. All in all a pretty typical WDFW rollout  :chuckle:

MS Deer didn't show up on my list, but I searched "multi season" and it popped right up. Might help others find it.
Got mine with no further incident!

Well after waiting half an hour and not even getting through two people I finally got it to work on my phone. Was last in line and first one out. Awesome to know deer season is starting in less than two weeks now!

So because I didnít buy an application I canít buy one of the leftover?


Okay cool


Thanks wdfw

Correct, this is well stated in several places on the WDFW website and licensing system.

Just more pay to play

Just add the app fee on top of the LEFTOVERS theyíll still get the money

Is it in the "Special Hunts" section?  The WDFW email just links to the site rather than where you actually buy it.  Useless.

WDFW just dropped a climate change video today.  "Climate change and its impact on hunting, angling, and other recreational pursuits"

You know what else impacts hunting?  Not being able to buy a tag.

Maybe they can blame climate change for their website issues.

I was at the Puyallup Sportsmans and got there at 940AM.  Was number 5 or so in line.  I left at 1130 because they could never get access to the WDFW to purchase anything.  So even the number 1 guy in line was still waiting when I left.

I was that guy in front of the line; well to the left of the counter. The lady was initially able to get the tag into the cart, but then it threw an "error" message. After a while longer, she was once again able to get to the screen to select the tag, but this time is said "A lifetime restriction prohibits the purchase of this product." At that time, the other lady was able to get through to a WDFW representative and brought my issue up. She was told that others are having the same issue and to keep "refreshing." Then the sight crashed, they went offline, rebooted and then she could not get into the tags at all.

I finally left and have been trying the last few hours. I finally got through to the page to buy a MS tag, but I was not able to select it because of the restriction message, so I emailed them to figure out WTF is going on. I also called, but am currently on an 80 minute wait. I do not know what the dang error message is about, but I have not seen anyone else posting on here about it. To the best of my knowledge, I have done everything legally in this state, so I do not understand why this message is on my account. I am still able to buy an elk tag, second bear tag and all my waterfowl tags... but not this MS tag. What a s*&# show this thing is.

As others around 3pm were able to buy theirs, I still didn't have the option. After login off & back on multi times there it was. Be sure you select All the options dropdown not just the buy again only. I use google chrome & usually don't get many Oh Deer! time outs. Good luck.

The department should be embarrassed that their vender can't produce a better mechanism to sell their product. I also feel that requiring payment when you apply would easily solve the issue of leftover tags.

Same issue with me and my son not showing as available finally got a hold of a regional office secretary she got licensing on the phone they told her they ceased sales at 1300 tags because of all the issues and they were making tickets orders for people who called at that time she said they had over 200 already and that when they got things figured out they would call those people and sell them the tag over the phone I hung up with her right at 3 pm saw someone on hunts a said they just bought one jumped back on and entered my sons info option was there got his bought logged off logged myself in and got it in my cart then it disappeared made some calls and miraculously they sold out so much for ceasing sales and creating a ticket for me

Well, that was upsetting to say the least. Stood in line with only two guys in front of me at 10:00. It took just over an hour for the two ahead of me. Then waited there for another two hours then had to leave. Tried the online thing all the way until the email was posted on here.

Gone are the days of buying an unspent MS tag with low hassle. I hear all of you on this. What ticks me the most is to think of the small fortune the department made by forcing a bunch of hunters to stress over this. Itís arguably about their budget, not ďopportunityĒ.

Today was a joke. Total waste of time. The website was an absolute joke. All the license vendors were backed up hours for a couple people to hopefully but a tag. This is not a professional or appropriate way to sell licenses. Not to mention a total disrespect to people and their time. Think of all the upset people and wasted hours spent trying to purchase something that used to not be a big deal (on the deer side). Iíve about had it with Washington in just about every aspect.

I agree. The licensing system really has gotten to the point that it's completely unacceptable and unprofessional. At the risk of sounding overly dramatic, they should be embarrassed and the Director should be fired. There's zero reason it should ever crash like that, including checking draw results.

:yeah: Reminds me of another government debacle that's currently unfolding. This BS is neverending and getting worse by the day. I wasted a better part of the day trying to get a tag. Tried online for a couple of hours.  Gave up and went to a license vendor.  Wasted another 30 minutes of my time and the clerks watching "Oh Deer" pop up several times. Tried again on the computer......nothing.  Tried on my phone simultaneously.  Nothing but spinning.  How in the world did they sell 2600 tags during all of this?  Thoroughly disgusted with this state.  They'll probably use the proceeds to support the wolves or study how much cow farts affect the ozone layer.  Pathetic.

The only reason I like the multi season tags is my work schedule dictates when and how much I'm able to hunt. I have and enjoy all three weapons so no big deal, but when I didn't have a ML I just used my bow which I prefer anyways.

Best of luck everyone.

Here is what I think was happening yesterday, as I understand it wasnít , fair, equal, consistent, or the same for everyone.

They werenít available at 10am for me like the email said. Finally about 10:20 I had it appear as an option, got it on the cart, went to check out and that was as far as I got, all day. I tried multiple browsers, phones, ect. It just sat in the cart with the circle of death, and usually the ďOh deerĒ crash, or some weird code error with a target and arrows at the bottom. Regardless of how many log ins or log outs I did, it was still in the cart, I just couldnít check out.

Finally around 3pm I figured I would give it another try. I logged back in and it was no longer in my cart. I assume, Like after 4 hours of so, if you havenít bought it, it automatically removed it from the cart. There was also none available at that time. So I figured I was out of luck.

Because I was enjoying hitting refresh every 3 minutes for the past 5 hours of the day, I figured I would try again, because what would I rather do with my life?

So I logged out and back in again and it gave me the option so I bought it ASAP. Probably around 3:20 or something. My guess is at about 3 to 3:30 the max time tags could be in a cart was expiring, so they were dumping them back into the system. So the people buying them then, were buying the ones someone else had in their cart earlier, but couldnít purchase due to the crash. So they were just randomly appearing as available if it just came out of someone elseís cart. Thatís why some people could find them and others couldnít. It was just the luck of the timing

I could be totally wrong, Iím no tech expert. Just a guess.

Or some guys who burn all their PTO out of state and already have muzzleloaders and bows and rifles don't mind spending what equates to an extra tank of diesel or a nice dinner out to extend their season by an extra 2+ months.

Perhaps this could be like calling to any other business where you dealing with customer service folks. You are placed into a que and as they complete the person ahead of you you move forward in que. But when everyone in the state is anxious to throw more money at a system. You just have to wait your turn!!! I'm guessing that "Both" folks can only process one at a time.

I called today around 100 and actually got through. The lady said the system was overloaded and they shut it down, If you sent an email or left a message you were put into a que and they will be calling in that order next week.

So, itís still possible for you to get a tag?  Sweet  :tup:
Wait, what?

Can someone explain what is happening? Did the department not actually sell the tags but created a reservation list or wtf?

Happy Monday!

They are definitely not very transparent on how this process works. I think it was about 3:30 on 8/18 they claimed they were sold out. Then we hear some are still able to get a tag. Not sure if it was people that had one in their cart but were later booted out of the system or if you somehow emailed them attempting to purchase or some other way to get on their list. Very confusing & wonder if it was truly first come first serve as they stated in their original email announcing the sale.  :dunno:

I had e-mailed them last Wed. knowing that I was at the dealer at 10:00.  System went down.  Waited around until 11:00 when the system was still showing no signs of working.  Called Olympia 10 times throughout the day with no luck.  Sent my e-mail to them.  I received an e-mail back last night at 4:00 stating that I was eligible for a MS deer tag.  I contacted them this morning and was able to get one purchased.

We just received a call from Olympia and my cousin was able to buy the MS deer tag over the phone. He had ticket # 201725. The lady said that there is less than 500 tags left.

 I was also assigned a ticket # after I called and complained about the debacle the day the MS tags were offered. I received a call about an hour ago and was able to purchase the MS deer tag.

Be curious to find out how many actually end up getting sold and if they stick to the quota. Wouldn't surprise me if they just sold extra to make some additional money for some pet project

Got the tag. From what I gathered, they will hear you out about your experience and make a decision as to whether your story is worthy of selling you a tag. I talked with two customer service people, and then the guy who sold me the tag. He said the point was for the dept. to feel comfortable that you were ready and able to purchase on the 18th but that the system crash caused you to lose the tag.

With the first customer service person, I could tell she wanted more information so I talked about being at BiMart at 10 with only two people in front of me and then waiting almost three hours getting continually kicked out of the system. Then I talked about what happened on the computer after that. They said I qualified and it was done.

Sounds like a fair and diplomatic system for tag allocation. A panel of wdfw employees deems whether your story is up to par or not and makes the decision on the spot. Jeesh...  :bash:

There was some of this last year too. I called and cried my heart out to them about all the problems I had attempting to purchase a MS tag. I didnít meet the cut and was told they had sold our  :bash:
If you get a no I recommend calling and trying with a different representative.
I wish I would have done that last year  :dunno:
Good luck to all of you trying.

Seriously. I was about to tell her to call the young manager at BiMart to confirm. What's really odd is that they put out a bulletin saying they were sold out when in fact they were not.
