Idaho is getting all their money, they don't really care how.

I personally you should only be able to buy for 3, unless is for family with the same last name (to help prove it).

Snagged a Salmon B elk tag and and a 21a deer tag.   Looking forward to learning some new terrain!
This was the combo we were hoping for but with our places in line, no chance (and one of the places was 2400).

That is the issue. Even with a lower number, you are still basically hosed because one guy can be low or in person and buy up a bunch of tags.

31214 and was logged in early.  Something stinks here  :dunno:
Doesnít matter what time you logged in, the number is randomly assigned. A few of us here tried at work, signing in at the same time. Lowest was 5206, highest was 34000.

Feeling like I donít deserve my over the counter Idaho resident tag that I take so for granted. Talked to a guy at the gas station here this morning that left the west side last night after work, drove all night and then slept in the parking lot of our gas station. Woke up at 5 and got in line to wait Thatís a ton more effort than I put in, just saying
I cant wait until I can get resident tags

I much prefer how it went today over a draw. The logging in and waiting for a number and watching it until you get in is better than drugs!  :chuckle:

I used to think that a draw would he better but dont anymore.

I think this way is easier to get a tag than a draw would be also. Waiting around all day is a barrier to entry that im sure thins the pool over just applying for a draw.  :twocents:

You shut your dirty mouth, this system is horrible and you won't convince me otherwise!  :chuckle:

Had I been 30 seconds earlier I'd be singing an entirely different tune

We should declare 12/1 a holiday in Washington. Itís Tag Day and only hunters get the day off.

I don't mind the system, I just wish there was some way to do group apps. Make it 4 person max, group has to be setup ahead of 10am MST in the waiting room before the queue is formed. That way you can't just group up with your buddy that has the lowest number, but still have a chance to apply as a group.

Though with the way they did sign in after your number was called, that wouldn't really work.

The system is ok but I would suspend in-person sales on 12/1 only. Everyone needs to go through the online waiting room that day. That would eliminate the in-person advantage over others attempting to buy tags.

The system is still better than a draw and has worked out ok for the last few years till it's you turn in line and the system does not redirect you to the site and then your queue number gets used but you don't get in, then back of the line you go....... so nothing this year

do you have a car? Can you drive to Idaho? Itís a choice to do online or go to a retailer. Take a day off work and go get your tags if you want one that bad.
