Again, they don't care.  They have to wrestle with the state bureaucracy on IT issues and in the end, we don't matter much.  Nobody wants to be the guy that is fighting for hunters or fisherman in current political climate of this state.

Man you hit the nail on the head with that!!!  We are the necessary evil that they have to deal with to get the revenue we generate for their general fund that has a hunger and appetite for money like nothing you can imagine!!!

You would think if it's so screwed up they would offer to reimburse us all who put in for draws last year or we could apply for free this year. It seems they messed it up they should fix it.

The draw wasn’t screwed.
The numbers representing the draw are screwed.

Looks updated now, at least all the numbers look reasonable and in line with prior years.  Quite a few hunts had lower number of applicants this year.

It does look to be correct now. But if you go to the next link down, titled "2018 Hunter Points Used by Permit Category," those numbers still appear to be way off. Maybe they plan to fix that one next. I hope.

Bobcat is right, still off in the "points by permit category" which is what you need to do any calculations of draw odds.

Maybe they don't want you to know your odds.  Then again, it doesn't stop people from buying Powerball tickets.  Anyone confirm a rumor that GoHunt was going to add WA this year?

If GoHunt adds Washington they will have to find data on their own. I emailed WDFW today to request a link or files for points used on special permits for the past 10 or 15 years... In short their response is "exact data you are requesting is unavailable."

Try a freedom of information act request, they just don't want to be bothered looking for it.  The data is there.

Just noticed today that the antlerless deer is still wrong. The permit I was looking at showed 3.3 times more applicants than the actual number of applicants. So they did fix some, but not all.
