The draw needs to go back to the 90s way if you drew a tag you had to wait 4 years to put back in for that tag but the years you couldn't put in you could buy your points.

I would also add that I would be willing to pay more for each application to help make up for the lost revenue considering most would end up likely paying less or the same anyway. 2 apps at $50 an app or 10 apps at an average of $10 per app is still $100 out of my pocket.


Hell, I would be willing to pay double, triple, and probably even much higher on ALL license fees if I thought it would fix WDFW and our fish/game woes.


Please donít tell wdfw this!! They charge enough already!

For those of us willing to pay extra to make they WDFW better go to this website and click on associate membership for $100. From there you can click the number up from 100 to 200 or 300 or whatever you are willing to donate so this group can fund their lawsuit against the commission and hold their feet to the fire to improve our hunting options.

Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

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

I am not willing to nor want to donate blindly to wdfw just to pee my money away. My comment was paying more per application if there were less options for the amount applications and thus improving overall odds.

This group is not the WDFW they are the group suing the governor and the commission for not doing their job. Giving WDFW more money isnít going to help. Giving to group that will pressure WDFW to do there job hopefully will.

would you rather have a 1:50 chance in one category, or a 1:1500 chance in 14 categories?

Does anyone know the total amount of revenue generated just from the application fees?

Wait...You were there as a citizen "witness", but only got to see one draw?

So much for transparency.  :rolleyes:  Is it any wonder why hunters and anglers have trust issues with the Dept.?
Hear Hear! The witnesses got to see one of the drawings! 🤷‍♂️ ridiculous

damn good question! I believe it is witnessed because of a law suit years ago, but not 100% sure.

I asked that question and was told no there is not a public witness for the raffles.
