My only real problem with the system is that we should be able to at least do partners somehow. Been hunting Idaho since 2002 and the last 2 years my group has not had the same unit. We have been spread all over and gotten sudden units each year. Itís hard to go to a brand new spot every year. Bout the time you get it figured out itís on to the next unit.
iPhone. There's definitely merit to this argument. While you all can't partake in your group hunt, another unintended consequence is snagging random tags that another guy was wanting. It's a viscous circle for sure.

They could separate deer and elk in to different days . To alleviate so much stress on the system.  I couldn't even get in to the waiting room in time so I was 22,000 with my brother at 13,000 by the time he got in to buy the McCall A tags were sold out . Guess next year I'll just drive 4 hours to Idaho to get it.

And if you're going to freeze the online sales it needs to stop via phone and in person. That was my biggest gripe. Purging tags everywhere else except for the poor schmuck on his lunch break staring at his iphone.
I think the phone/in person sales were sometimes disrupted and were supposed to stop synchronized with online sales...but in practice that was far from the case.  I had one relative buy 5 10a deer tags for guys yesterday...he deserves a 'convenience fee' not the IDFG :chuckle:

Guys need to stop saying go to draw. Fix the sale system but we DO NOT need another draw system  :twocents:
Why not? I love knowing how and when I can plan a hunt. Wyomings system is perfect in my eyes. Buy points, plan. Go hunt

I agreed with that last year, not so sure after this year.... per IDFG email today, they had 67K different customers trying to buy roughly 27K tags... just 3-4 years ago, I would buy tags on the way over... this is nuts

I agree that people should be able to buy them in person, but not allowing someone else to buy them in person for you. I think most of us also agree with Karl that we dont want another draw system, but I'd advocate for a draw if this isn't addressed because it's pure bs. To let one person buy multiple tags for other hunters undermines the OTC sales imho. :twocents:

This here is silly. Wyoming point creep is crazy the last few years. Yes you used to be able to stick pile points and then go hunt, but that ship has sailed. Now days if you burn your points youíll never catch up with anything but a general tag, and that will take 3 or 4 years.

A legit draw for general tags would be a deathblow to NR guysÖperiod.

In 5 years getting a general tag would be akin to getting a controlled tag. Couple the legislative requirement to make this happen would also include other aspects that would no doubt hurt NR even more (reduced capped tags, increased resident tags, increased outfitter tags).

Fix the point of sale issues and all is well.

Maybe if youíre talking about draws that take 14 points or something. I have gone to wyoming 3 times in the last 6 years for deer and I know that I likely will be able to go again in 2 years. At least based on how the creep has been for the 6 years I have been applying. If they went to the same draw system in Idaho I would simple find the unit that takes the amount of points that aligns with my future plans and go hunt.

I can almost guarantee anyone advocating for Idaho going to a point system hasn't been playing the point system game for almost 30 years.  And then you have the states that square points that are even worse...

I have been and would much prefer every state had just stayed with the random draw like Idaho and New Mexico...although NM is screwy with their allocation percentages...
