While I would love to draw a

While I would love to draw a Colorado moose tag I have given up on the idea of ever drawing it.  I will still put in for it but don't expect to draw it in my lifetime.  But then I have come to that conclusion on a lot of hunts that I want to do.  I have looked at the odds and for a lot of the hunts I figure that I will be in my 90's when and if I do draw. 

I am just glad that a mutual fund that I started when I was in my 20's is to the point that I can draw out a few thousand each year and take or go on a hunt without having to wait for the draw.  Granted I may have to hire a outfitter due to the laws of the areas that I plan on going but at least I'll get to hunt the animals that I really want to hunt. 

I will still put in for the draws just on the idea that someone has to draw the tag, but I don't expect to.

 

Good luck on the draws.

How many points does less

How many points does less than 1% equal? I have 14 points as of now but figure it is another 6 years or more before I draw. Good luck and you cannot get the tag if you do not put in for it.

I HAVE MAX

POINTS at 3-13 and the way weighted points work ( WHICH IS ANOTHER STORY) I HAVE less than 1%. Every time someone gets to 3 points my odds go down. But , like you said, Can't win if you don't play!!!

I understand how this crazy

I understand how this crazy point system works Just was not sure what you meant by the 1%. I am at 3-14 but I think the 3 part is a mear formality as the weighted points is what is used to divide out your number. Good luck and you just might get an early Christmas present.

You must know

someone to have 14! 13 is the most you can have until this year!!! To answer your Question. Everyone gets issued a random number which is then divided by your weighted points. So if you and I get a high random number we are screwed. Where do you plan to hunt? If it is the same as me and you out draw me I will help you on what I know! Once in a lifetime , so I figure you gotta help a guy out if you can. I am 7,8,191. This only applies to people who contribute to the site!!! Sorry!!!

Just put in for PP this year

Just put in for PP this year so no doubt I will get that. Agree that if you are not lucky on the random number assigned by the DOW then you are hosed even with high points. As for area, looking at 17/171. Wife and I take 1 or 2 trips a year up in this area and always see some real nice bulls. Of course when/if I draw we will be doing a lot more scouting. Good luck and hope you finally draw.

good luck!

Good luck guys! I'm in for Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont moose tags this year. The odds of drawing are low but I've drawn 2 tags in 18 years so it CAN be done! Go get them!
