For those of us that didn't draw has your credit card been refunded?  As of today mine hasn't....
unless something has changed since I last got a refund it will come as a check in the mail.

Correct, it is a check in the mail and it takes a bit of time. Sadly, I have first hand experience with this multiple times

Luckily my experience is when I elected the "return my elk tag if special permit not drawn". Been fortunate to have drawn a general tag every year beside this year for the last 5 or more years

Are the special draw permits for muley and elk worth the cost of buying and building points? I starting buying bonus points before I really understood the system and not sure if I want to keep building or cut my losses.

Not interested in premium, top points required tags but planning on more of a rotation between CO, WY, MT and ID.

Nope. I won't be applying for them anymore because there are so many good options with the general tags

short answer is yes. While there's endless general season opportunities in MT that would keep a guy busy and entertained there's some really incredible permits to be had. The cost is to apply is pretty minimal and just adds to the depth of your application portfolio.

Can you apply later after you draw a general tag or is it pretty much donr now.

You apply at the same time, if you don't draw the general you automatically won't draw a special permit.
