Question regarding Multi Season draw
« on: March 15, 2023, 10:17:06 AM »
  Being that all of the multi's were not distributed last year by Mid October,  I was wondering if there is a way to find out how many applied for it and if they even bought a license. Since it sure seems Someone(s) are getting in the way of it happening as intended. Anyone have an idea?

No answer to your question but I hope it is handled differently this year! Back to first come first served for deer. I know people who would've bought tags in August but laughed at the notifications they received in October that they could buy. I also wonder about the cost effectiveness of multiple draws/notifications to not sell out when they could have OTC.

I like the new way of issuing unsold tags, next in line get first crack.  I only wish they’d speed up the process, give people 2 weeks after the first draw, then 1 week at a time.

The deer leftover tags were a disaster last year. From my friend within the department, they are well aware of that and from the sounds of it we might be seeing it go back to an OTC for leftover multiseason deer tags in 2023.

so..
for next year, i put in for points..because i know NOW that i wont have time to utilize the opportunites.  my guess is for people who actually apply, but then don't buy if they draw is because of priorities or commitments changing.
It would make zero sense to me to apply and have zero intention of drawing, unless you are applying for just points.

i too agree that the new system makes more sense, but it should happen MUCH faster.
Draw next group of however many unsold are, give them say 5 days to buy, onto the next group of remaining unsold.
It was indeed laughable that they were offering multi season tags AFTER one of the seasons.

 :yeah:  First ones to buy MS application get front of the line for left over MS permit.  That will speed things up.   :chuckle:

Or they could just make it like any other draw where you apply and if you're successful your card is hit and the tag shows up in the mail.  :dunno: I guess that would require planning and accountability, wishful thinking

I am still dumbfounded that we get 4 months to apply... and after the draw is completed in April, the "selected" folks get 3.5 months to decide whether or not they will purchase it or not.  That is 7.5 months to decide on something most folks know if they are going to purchase or not much sooner.  This timeline SNAFU is self imposed by the WDFW and can be easily fixed.

I thought the new system made sense, but the delays between drawings were too long. They should be weekly with text messages and phone calls. If you miss out then you didn't care that much  :dunno:. Also why delay until August to buy the tag? Just buy it or lose it.

Emails should be sent to permit managers and such, most of these ideas are good ones, they need to hear it from us.  I've talked with shanequa a bit about all this, she said they need to hear it from the public to have any teeth.  It's crazy when those involved with the draw have good ideas with changes but it doesn't go far without public input.  Months ago I asked this group if we should shorten the time we have to put in for special permits, only about 60+% thought it was a good idea, that idea was passed on but not sure it went anywhere, they probably needed a higher % of supporters to take it seriously.  Not sure why people think 4 weeks is needed???  My point, if we hit them with emails and a high majority of those emails have good ideas, it might gain traction.  My message was to shorten time up to pay for your MS tag to two weeks in the initial draw, then that next week give the runners up 5 days, and the same process till a certain date, for elk.  For deer, same two weeks initial draw, then over the counter for those who put in but didn't draw.

 I've heard rumors that members here have witnessed the SP draw before and maybe they could pass along if they keep a database of muti season apps as we pretty much KNOW they do with the SP's.  Now that I think of it maybe not since you actually have to apply for them (SP catagories) after buying the chance.

I'm not sure if this answers the question or not, but here is data from 2021. The data from 2022 isn't available yet but should be soon.
