    I think there are going to be a lot of wives(ghost hunters) out there with lots of points and no way to use them.

    Does not allow tag transfers (except in exceptional circumstances)
    • Tag transfers will only be allowed in exceptional circumstances (e.g. illness, injury or death of the tag holder or an immediate family member) and will require an application to the MNRF with supporting documentation.
    • Not allowing tag transfers increases fairness by discouraging “ghost hunters” (hunters who do not hunt moose but whose credentials are used by moose hunters to increase their chances of acquiring a tag)

    Either that, or there are going to be some great camp cooks in the future.

    Maybe I will start applying again since my new-to-me cottage is in a local WMU that has a short season. Does anyone know if there will be a way to determine how many points will likely result in being awarded a tag? Does the new system basically get rid of group applications?
    Actually, OOD Mag has a good summary of the new system on pages 24-25. The new system does get rid of the group applications.
    The way it read to me, I may be wrong, is that every tag is individual now but anyone can join your party. So, if you have enough points you go and get your license and your validation tag. Then you call up your buddies and they all pay $35 to join you on your hunt and party hunt with you on that 1 valid tag, once that tag is gone then you are done hunting. You can pay for that tag yourself at $300 or whatever it is or you can ask the people who you bring in your party to contribute to that cost.

    I think it is a great idea, no more "wives tags" and transfers, I hope it actually gets the wives out hunting rather than just being used to get a better chance at a tag.

    They should put out some info as to the point cost of a tag in what WMU but who knows really, this is all new.

    Your cottage is in 63A?

    Used to go to Geraldton, no problem getting tags but the number of hunters kept going up and the number of moose kept going down. Haven't gone up there in over 10 years and only started going in the draw the last 3 years again because my brother bought property in WMU28 so not interested in hunting anywhere else. We'll just have to wait our turn. Not holding my breath but talked to a few of his neighbors when we went for a bird hunt. 3 of them had tags this past year so at least I'm ahead of them now.

    Not breaking nothing, I realize that, but that's only if you decide to hunt on someone else's tag. Just saying it used to be $60 to stay home, now only $15. Won't cost any extra as I won't have to buy the licence until I'm drawn, I'm 6 points ahead of the next guy in the group so I'll be the first guy to draw one if it happens and depending on how long that takes it probably will be my last moose hunt as well.

    Yes, seems like you can form the group after someone gets a tag. In the previous system, one of the reasons I stopped applying was because I didn't have a group, and the chances of getting an individual tag were minimal.

    Yes, my cottage is in 63a. It looks like there are (or were) actually 2 short seasons, a bow and gun season. Unfortunately, the chances of getting drawn for an adult tag were 6% (!), so that probably translates into a whole whack of points. I'll keep monitoring the situation to see if, as the years go by, they start publishing info on the "minimum points" required for a tag, maybe spend the $15 to buy my annual point.

    Question ......... a camp with 5 hunters who all have very high points, 2 get tags and they only want one. Can one reserve for next year? Or keep his points and refuse tag?

    yes they can refuse a tag, then that tag gets put back into the system for the second draw,
    and the next year odds are person will have enough points to draw again that year.
