My dad drew observatory in 2015 with 2 points, that's not the hardest tag to get but proves we all have chances.  No matter how small.  I love looking at the points used category of each individual hunt and seeing all of those lucky *censored*s haha

16 points, never drawn. 
When I look at the poor schlep that has 34 points, I know his name goes in the hat 1,156 times... and he still hasn't drawn either...

...makes me want to hunt out of state... :tung:

I have drawn the any antlered bull tag 4 times in 15 yrs.  I don't remember how many pts I had in 2002 the first time I drew.  2002,2005,20010,2017 3yrs 5yrs,7yrs... so the way the pattern goes it will be 9 yrs before I draw again.

What tag with one point? :yike:

I am a high school teacher, and have a student in my class that drew the Chelan Butte Ram Tag with 0 points, and another kid that drew Blue Creek Quality Bull with 2 points.  I had a senior last year that drew Wenaha Quality Bull with 2 points when he was 10 years old.  My first year teaching I had a girl that had drawn Bull Moose with 2 points and Quality Bull with 3. My son drew Blue Mountain Foothills whitetail tag his second year in the game. All of these kids killed nice animals. 
Makes me think that WDFW knows who the kids are...   ;)  None of these were "youth only" tags...

Iíve drawn buck deer with 6, quality elk 7, two quality deer tags both with 3 and second deer with 6. Iíve draw these tags all since 2012. Iím in the double digits with bull and oils. I had a good run for quite a while. I have had several friends draw great tags and it is just as fun as drawing the tag yourself. One thing I would recommend is getting to know the units you are applying for before you actually get drawn. I see it on here all the time people putting in for units that they have never stepped foot in. Take a camping trip several times during the summer and learn the lay of the land. It will increase your success dramatically.  :twocents: good luck on the draws everyone! :tup:

Some people think theyíll get the lay of a unit before they draw,because it usually takes so many points, so they think they have time. When they draw with very little points they get a bit surprised and desperate for info... it happens sometimes...

23 points this year for quality and regular bull, ghost pointed so 24 points next year.  I do not put in for both, one or the other, but out of the 23 years Iíve only ghost pointed quality once, now twice.  My wife has drawn 2 quality bull tags, both with 8 points.  One was a rifle rut tag, yes, I should be putting in with her!

Speaking for my hunting partner, he drew Peach's Ridge Quality Elk Archery last year, with 2 points. We were in disbelief. We saw more wolves than elk, he killed a decent 6 point last day of his hunt. That was the only elk he/we saw in 8 days of hunting hard.
