There is a point. Here it is:

Here's a question I've never asked before but have wondered: How good are our quality tags? For example, how good is our quality bull elk tag compared to say, Idaho OTC elk?

It is a bit dependent, but I would hunt 95 percent of the quality tags for Elk here over OTC in pretty much any western state. Deer is more species dependent, But for elk I basically plan my fall with Washington on the back burner unless I draw a permit. Almost all the Bull or Quality permits are worth spending the time IMO, and for sure it beats OTC in Idaho.

The big difference is ID is every year and WA quality is every.......  Iíll let you know when I draw.

Iíve shot 7 animals otc in the other state while waiting for my resident draw.  I would have a 0.7% chance here this year for all the years of my loyalty, dollars and patience.

Itís not a bad hunt, just a bad deal. Same as powerball, a mountain of losers and one lucky guy.

quality elk tags are not a comparison to hunting ID OTC. Very few hunters, lots of bulls and not just lots of bulls, but some very big bulls in the units. Ive drawn 2 in WA and by far better than any elk hunt I have been on.

Wow that's really encouraging! Thanks for chiming in, everyone, regarding the quality of our "Quality" elk hunts. I am not a particularly lucky dude when it comes to lottery stuff but I'll keep trying! In the mean time, I'll keep hunting and enjoying OTC. Looking forward to a great 2019.

Yeah, you really need to research the other tags and general seasons for the unit you are applying.  If the spike rifle season opens in the middle of the permit hunt it will dramatically lower the quality of said hunt starting two days before the general opener.

The other thing is that the animals can be fairly pressured before you even show up if you are putting in for a rifle tag.  For the bull tag I drew, there was an archery season, smoke pole, disabled and master hunt before my hunt and by the time I got there they were already in the nocturnal hunting season routine.
