Rough crowd.

Remind me  not to tell you all about the Washington goat tag my son got the whole season for and still got his points back.  LOL

I certainly don't fault the guys that followed the DNR closure and turned in their tags after 6 days.  I am not sure I like the option they were given.  I feel like if you got to hunt half of the season you should at the very least lose half of your points.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

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

Every father should remember that one day his children will follow his example instead of his advice.

So late to the conversation but I was one of the clockum archery bull tag holders. If you were able to check your emails,  the game department gave you an option to return your permit to restore your points. It just had to be post marked within 7 days of your hunts opening day. I hunted pretty hard for 6 days with not hardly any bulls talking. But did see some true B&C bulls. I did return my permit, no regrets and wasn’t willing to hang 18 points on the line for maybe 5 or 6 days of the bulls possibly getting fired up. I look at it as I got 6 days of practice run for when I get drawn next time plus through this forum I was able to broaden my horizons in the clockum that I’ve hunted for 20 years and thought I knew quite well.

Even given the conditions, your odds of sticking it out and killing a bull IMO were way higher than your odds of ever pulling the tag again. Or at least they should have been.  :dunno:

Last year, a guy was 5x more likely to shoot an elk there than draw the tag with 18 points.  Even if the odds went down 75% this year you are still right.

WDFW seems to inflict random acts of violence and compassion.  My daughter drew a tag you had to wait for a call to hunt.  Call from WDFW never came, they wouldn't give points back.  She lost her points for a tag she never could hunt.

Been there myself.

I do know this for sure.
I got an email from the WDW regarding returning my permit shortly after the DNR announcing the closure. It included a phone number as well as instructions. The instruction I got were that my returned permit would have to be post marked on or before 9/26/2020. My opening day for the permit is 9/28/2020.
I called number in the email and talked to the person who answered and he stated again that if I wanted to return the permit and get my points back the returned envelope with the permit in it had to be postmarked no later than 9/26/2020.

That is what I would expect the email and the company line to be.  You have to return it before the hunt and certainly not after you have tested the water for 6 days.

Well, do we know the points actually were restored after being able to hunt for six days? We know he THINKS that's the case. But maybe not.

I am curious about that as well.  I would love to see the actual email and how it is worded.
