Sorry if I missed this, but are "Conflict Goat" tags not a thing anymore?

Not sure but the plan at this point I believe is to capture and relocate a lot of those goats.

Dont give up. I drew with 9 points, which sounds like a lot but look at everyone else. A guy gets lucky once in a while.

I never did understand why WDFW did not offer this hunt so that it did not qualify as your once in a lifetime (OIL) goat.  :dunno: I mean who wants to blow their years of point building to go shoot any goat including nannies as WDFW urges hunters to do with this tag?
If the goal was really to reduce conflict and not specifically make it a trophy tag they should have set this hunt up so that it did not qualify to be your OIL goat. Meaning that if you drew the conflict tag and got a goat, you could still apply for the other goat tags and your conflict goat was not considered to be your OIL goat. If I remember correctly, there was a big push by hunters to waive the OIL status of these conflict tags, but WDFW shot it down. They could have simply offered more tags that did not qualify as OIL goats and got much better results to achieve the original goal, CONFLICT REDUCTION. But no, now there will be an expensive project to try to relocate goats instead of managing the hunt in an intelligent fashion.

Isn't it only OIL if you kill a goat?

If it wasn't OIL I would be applying every single year....and so would everyone else under the sun.

If the goal is to reduce or eliminate the herd why place any barrier to application on it at all? It's not being billed as a normal goat hunt so applying the oil designation seems off from their stayed message.

Ya I agree with you.

This is just me, and I don't expect anyone else to think the same way as me although I suspect more than a few do. I would never apply for this hunt knowing it was an OIL hunt. Let me rephrase that. I would never shoot the first goat I saw(like they want you to) knowing it was an OIL hunt. I guess I'm not surprised people do, but I don't want my WA OIL mountain goat to be a nanny.

Wow, I didn't realize it would waste the OIL opportunity, I probably will quit applying.
