Are We the Last State to Complete Special Draws?
« on: May 31, 2018, 10:09:42 AM »
Are we?      I realize that we have to deal with the shorter time to scout, plan, and prepare...   BUT it would be nice if we knew our results a month or two sooner.
Do not tell me how to live my life, and I won't tell you how to live yours.....

I get my Illinois results in August for firearm season. But they have 3 separate drawings for firearm. Archery is the same time frame.

No.

Idaho, Oregon, and Wyoming results are out about the same time as ours, or later. Those are just the ones off the top of my head.

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

Utah just popped. I would say about the same timeframe.   I still dont know my Montana OIL.  Of course it might have been drawn....lol

Def not for Deer.
AZ deadline is still 2 weeks out for online applications (June 12) then a month or more till drawn.  They do elk SUPER early though and that was drawn before our Elk deadline hit.

Pennsylvania elk draw DEADLINE isn't until end of July.  The drawing is sometime in August.

I'm glad Washington is close to last, that way I know whether I want to draw here or just get points if I have better options elsewhere.
I know I've lost it, let me know if you come across it

As much as WDFW drive me crazy and as much as I am not a fan of lots that they do, people need to chill out on the draw results thing.  Washington is literally one of the fastest states for pumping out results.  Most other western states are 6 weeks to 2 months turn around.  Washington does it in less than a month normally.  Heck Idaho's app deadline isn't even until next week and they have seasons that start in August.  Just my  :twocents:
