Its important to remember this is a pilot program, odds are good those in charge did not forecast or understand the level of interest this would generate. Rumors are some big names in the hunting industry put teams together along with thousands of very accomplished hunters. In hindsight leading with a draw and then vetting those drawn may have been the better option. Again IMO they were planning to rank 40 applications for 20 positions. Receiving 1200 changes that drastically.

That never occurred to me as a possibility. What if “that famous TV hunter guy” applied?

What a thankless task to choose the teams.

Not selected, by the way.
I talked to her Friday and she mentioned the fact that with covid-19 being a problem out of state or major travel groups were pretty much thrown out from the beginning.  We made it top the 100 but go figure with our awesome draw odds we didn't get to the 40! :chuckle:

I know some guys who applied with 21 goats between them, hunted all over the world and they were not selected.

Probably gave it to some liars who pumped their stats.

MG?

Yes

I disagree. Patti is one squared away chick and I think she has done a great job through the whole process.  They had a vetting system and at the end of the day only 21 teams out of 1,200 could be selected.

:yeah: as busy as she was Friday, she took time to talk and was very informative.  I forgot to ask her about the 18 Aaron's with two A's though! :chuckle:

I was kind of surprised it gone done so quickly.  Pretty sure she's a school board member and something else that takes up time--her name is on the ballot at times.

I would agree. I'm impressed with the level of communication from her.

I emailed Patti this morning. They had my email incorrect for the reply. My team made the cut.
