Good stuff here from Bango and Bushcraft. I think these are similar to answers you would get from most of the people spending big money on these. Slightly different reasons but similar at the same time.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

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

@trophyhunt

I asked the same question a few years back. One of the answers I got, from an actual guy who spends a bunch of $$ on this stuff, was that he's not able to leave his business for weeks at a time. These hunts here on their home turf allow them to hunt for a weekend or a day or 2 here and there over the course of a few months.
My point is there's a bunch of reasons. Different strokes for different folks. If I was in their shoes, I'd be in it for Bango's reasons he mentioned. Pretty much nails it down for me.
:fire.:

" 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

Some of these raffle permits have higher odds of winning than the regular special permit hunt for folks with low point totals.  The NE WA raffle permit includes an any bull moose in it.  $17 gets a 1 in 1222 chance at a moose...for somebody with low points in moose that's better odds compared to the special permit drawing.  ~$5K gets a 25% chance.  Given the long season and any weapon, and 25 GMUs involved.....if somebody has the money that's hard to argue with.


Similar math on the sheep and goat tags when considering costs of auction tags or Canadian stone sheep hunts.  And the even longer odds on those special permits for somebody with low point totals.  I'm surprised that only $36K was spent on goat and $42K on sheep for the totals.   Would have expected more.

I am in for minimal money in the grand scheme of things and can tell you that my odds are WAY better in the raffle than the regular draw.  :twocents:

I have said this before and those in the raffle may be pissed but it's not that hard to just save a few bucks a day, $40-$90 a month can get you $1,000 by the end of the year.  Throw that in the raffle and you have stellar odds compared to the regular draw system.  I put $1,200 in the east elk last year and got ticket #9.  Close but no cigar.  The nice thing or the bad thing is you can see how close you were.  You don't get that with the regular draw unless you are a witness. 

FYI I was a witness to the regular draw this year and was 21,932 on the list of not selected's, that sucked.

Im not sure knowing is good, when I witnessed I was the first loser of a draw with 7 tags!  Last year I put in about 40$ For the west side elk and drew 3rd or 4th! So close!  I would buy a lot more tickets in the past when you could do it on line, usually bought a couple every payday, miss those days.

I get the reason that they had to move it to in store purchases only but I think it did hurt the sales a bit at first.  Sales seemed pretty strong this year in most categories.

I would hope for late next week but I don't have any inside information on this one.  They do have my name and number from before if they need a witness again but I haven't been contacted.

How do they determine who gets to be a witness?

the only place second place matters in the moose raffle. Other than that I would rather come in at 5000 than number two in any of the other raffles. Last year 3100 bucks into it and all I had to show was a last place 5th. Not even checking this year. If Im lucky I will get a phone call if not we know how it went. :twocents:

Speaking from experience, I can assure you that any of your tickets drawn after #1...sucks.  :chuckle:

Anybody have a link to where you type in your raffle numbers? I followed the link i found on the wdfw website, and it just sends me to log in to wild id system, and i dont see where you put your numbers in.  I know its early, but in 2017 the draw was done on the 19th or 20th.
