To bypass the average number thing, You can dive in to the data and see what point holder were chosen and go through year to year and see how many points each person had that drew. It's crazy seeing the max point carriers not getting picked and people with 3 or 4 drawing.  It's a random draw with bonus points . Nothing is guaranteed that's for sure.

At this point the only meaningful thing that can increase draw odds is to have more wildlife. That can probably only be accomplished by reducing the predator footprint, which includes hunters, indian tribes, poachers, and the ever expanding population of 4 legged predators.

As far as I know WDFW is only restricting hunters, I'm not sure if that will make the difference needed?

Was excited when I drew multi-elk, but after looking through the permits, pretty much figure this will be my last year applying for "special" permits, seems like only multi season and spring bear are the only ones not OIL.

Thinking positive and worry about being disappointed when the time comes.  I am changing my focus on selections.  Will be some points only choices where no choices I want.

Im still pondering if I should keep buying points or just quit, I want to believe animal populations will increase and someday the points will be worth something again.

It will better for all of you next year. I have over 20 points for sheep, moose and goat. Close to ten for Qbull, Qbuck etc. Will be a resident of Montana by fall of 2020 so I will no longer put in for Wa. Wish I could donate my points to some young upcoming hunter so by the time he/she is 60 they maybe could have a quality hunt.

Odds of drawing are slim but still fun to try.  I do my dream hunt every year with an OTC tag in Oregon for elk.  Drawing a quality elk tag here just means I dont have to drive as far.  16 pts for deer at 52 years of age has me a little worried lol.  Moose, sheep and goat I dont think I will ever draw so it is like buying  lotto ticket.

  :yeah: but with that said, I've never been on a bad permit hunt.  You draw a tag, you are gonna have a good hunt.

As long as you put in serious effort.

I've seen a lot of complaints about crappy permit hunts.  The few I have been on have been amazing though.
