Is there a way to find out if you had been drawn, but you choices had been filled? would your application be returned to the pot

your always drawn, problem is the tags are usually filled by then.  Out of all your points, only the one with the lowest random number is drawn.

I see what you did there.  :chuckle:
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

Best odds are buying a load of raffle tickets. If you go by odds alone that's you best bet. If it were my choice, I would go with idaho system. But, it doesn't bring in the revenue like the point system...I think

Your best odds, yes.
Just know these raffle tags are "purchased" by folks with deep pockets  :twocents:

How do you find out what your numbers are?

The maximum points a person could have is 23. The first year of the point system was 1996.


 :yeah:

Iím at max.  The odds go down slightly each year even though the max point holders numbers drop each year.   Moose is a lot easier to draw than sheep and goat.  Iíve been lucky drawing the other 2. 
The sheep tag would be the ultimate hat trick  :drool:

I could be wrong but Ive only seen 1 out of state oil tag holder in the last couple years. I dont think we get many.

Out of state people probably buy more raffle tickets than applying for special permits.
