Is it worth it to apply if you haven't been accumulating points?

I'm just starting to figure out the points system. It seems like it'd be good to apply to get a point even if I'm not drawn. Especially to an area with a higher chance of being drawn.

Awesome. I'll apply tonight. Just wanted to make sure that I had a shot. Somehow, I've always struggled to find good information on the points system. I'm slowly getting things figured out.

They always like to have a handful of low points to bring down the average points to draw ,to make the hunt more appealing to draw in more people .That's what makes it more of a lottery draw.They should make it so you can't draw without 2 points,if you drew last year you have to ghost point.Helps slow down point creep also gives a better average of points needed to draw .Whatever they say the average is I would add a point to that, Because they have picked people with low points to bring down average.
Two birds in the Bush is always better than one in the hand-that way you can always go to the Bush and hunt another day .conservation=Better hunting.

The only way to eliminate points issues is to eliminate points.  Itís past time to shut the system down.

Usually takes 3 or 4 tries.  Doesnt matter how many points.   If lucky draw every 3rd year. Unlucky might go 7 or 8 years.

Did you ghost point some years or did it actually take you that long to draw?
