Wdfw sent an email last week stating draw results wouldn’t be posted until August 14th.
Some other guy was talking about it in another thread. Not sure of the validity.

Good luck with your wait.

August 14th for west side elk results, August 31st for east side. Seems weird that they’d break it up like that??

I don't mind the wait. Every day until the draw results are posted is full of promise and hope - the promise of a quality hunt, the promise of being in the elk and deer woods during the peak of the rut with just a handful of other lucky hunters. The hope that this will be my year for an OIL tag and, for the next few weeks, I get to hold onto that hope. I can make plans for opening day hikes, camping and travel arrangements and check the classified section for the weapon upgrade that I've been secretly squirreling away money for.
This time of year my thoughts are full of optimism so I am in no rush for the draw to come and have, in the time it takes me to log on and scroll through my selections, all my hope and promise replaced by that all too familiar kicked in the jimmies feeling.  :)

So what are your guys' reasoning that YOU DESERVE that quality tag, haha .  Just looking for some light hearted responses here.

Mine is:  I graduate college with my bachelors degree on June 19th, and I am hoping the state of Washington gifts me a present of a quality tag around that time!!!!! *Fingers Crossed for Blues Mtn Archery*

I did! So that means in the last 5 years I e drawn all categories of elk tags, but have never drawn a deer tag. So I need to keep the mojo going.

I want my quality bull tag so I can be the first one in my family since my great grandfather to kill a bull elk. I would also settle for the any bull tag I put in for with my father so I could take him up and let him shoot a bull just like he used to do with me for deer. Just sit there and enjoy the excitement from him making his harvest. Especially since he has arthritis in his knees now and can't hike in like he used to. We all want the tags. Good luck to everyone no matter your reason for wanting the tag! May we all be drawn and may we all fill those tags!

I do NOT want to draw any of the permits I applied for, just can't bear to do points only.  I don't have much time to take off work, and I'm already down a week of leave for a Wyoming deer hunt.  I'm also pretty physically compromised for any of the OILs.  You hear that, Draw Gods?  I do NOT want to draw, just give me another point in each category!
