Title: What are your points totals??
Post by: trophyhunt on May 06, 2022, 06:59:12 PM
Maybe I was a bit bored, lol. So I counted ALL my point totals from every catagory from my WDFW account. Count ALL, even the categories you can’t use till later in life, or not at all (youth, disabled, 65+).

163 if I added correctly.

Funny !   You are middle of the pack,  1 outa 30 to 1 outa 100 odds typically.   

Remember odds get worse every year so if you didn’t draw last year you likely won’t  draw this year…….

I keep a spreadsheet for points and applications in all the species and states I apply in. It says I have 189 for Washington but it doesn't count the worthless points. my total for all states is 696. Just added up all the oddball Washington points and got 317.
Title: Re: What are your points totals??

so with 27 points, my odds are 40% for the bull catagory I might apply for, and 10% for the other bull permit. 3.3% for the quality, won’t say which ones but west side rifle and muzzy. I could be applying for many more years…

Just proof we are being failed by WA state. System is broke needs fixed. A resident should not need 10 plus pts for a deer hunt or 15 plus for n elk hunt. We need change

267 for me. Last tag I drew was in 2010 and yes I apply for hunts not just pts. I’m fortunate to draw several other hunts in other states over the years.
Title: Re: What are your points totals??
Post by: fishngamereaper on May 07, 2022, 09:14:28 AM
240 rough count and I've drawn just about everything in the last ten years besides buck deer (points only for 19 years) and oils.... which should be called oitls.

Right at 180 for me, at 34 years old I need to quit now.  Except for a couple OIl Goat and sheep with 25 and 22 pts I'll donate for a chance.

Wow, that's crazy that some of you have that many.  I moved to the state 11 years ago and am up to 39, all in deer and elk, and haven't drawn anything yet.... at this point, I'm just hoping for a cow elk tag within my lifetime, or at least before I up and leave to a state with better odds  :chuckle:
Title: Re: What are your points totals??
Post by: NRA4LIFE on May 07, 2022, 07:34:31 PM
I've got 19 points for elk, deer, moose and sheep.  I've never drawn a tag for an animal with antlers/horns.  In this time, I've drawn 1 cow elk and one cow moose, the latter filled only.  "NOT SELECTED" may be my undoing.

Not sure if it’s luck, the stars aligning, some kind of math algorithm or what, but some people just draw. My wife is one of them, she drew the first muzzy tag for the white w 8 points, drew the rifle rut tag for white w 8 points, drew another quality elk tag back in 1999, and drew a cow moose tag w 7 or 8 points.  My dumb azz still doesn’t put in w her!!!

My dad drew Dayton bull tag the same year Dan Agnew killed the record bull.  That was when Dayton was good, and he drew with 3 pts.  I wish a pool of tags always went to the top end point holders to increase their odds.  I am not sure if that would WA's system improve while still having a chance with 1 point but it's crazy to think people invested decades and still only have 3-4% chances on oil tags.  Population goes up......... tag quota's go down........where will we be in 10yrs?

there is no good point system that's works well. A hybrid system that gives top points holders x amount of tags while the others go randomly off points might make things a little better but not much.

We have a boat load of points. Your odds are better in the elk category as two of us have dropped out this year. My son is still a youth so we put him in for everything we usually do. Daughter and I just did quality deer, and I put her in for a second deer. Was hard to get motivated to drop the $$ this year. Another motivator to save money on tags, we have a delicious looking Simental steer heading to the freezer in July.

That’s pretty dang good.

My dad drew goat with 7 points a couple years ago… it can happen.

I think I’ve consistently put in since 2008

3 spring bear
1 quality deer
1 quality elk
1 bull elk
1 antlerless elk
A couple second deer
