Thread: Question Rationale for Moose Point system

    Default Question Rationale for Moose Point system

    Does anyone understand the rationale for why they did away with group hunting under the new point system?

    Under the old system anyone in your group who drew a tag pulled the whole group out of the lottery, then the tag was awarded to the hunter in your group who had got the longest without drawing a tag.

    This used up all the points for group hunters, under the new system hunters who used the group hunting are screwed over.

    Does anybody know why they did this?

    Fairness in tag allocation for everyone,eliminates tag fraud by "ghost" hunters,ensures greater harvest accounting,it's the same system used in other north American jusisdictions where hunting pressure is higher are all reasons to adopt this system.

    Simply to be fair to everyone. The groups had a good run where those of us who don’t have 12 or more people never had a chance

    now it’s simply fair. Sure it sucks for those who had an unfair advantage for years but I like it. Even if it will take me 20 years to get a tag if I’m lucky at least I now have a chance

    Agreed. In our WMU,it takes 19 points to get a tag. I only have 8. At my age,I'll never see another tag and really,after the number of Moose we've taken out over the last 21 years of hunting the same area (15) I'm OK with that. We still hunt Deer,Bear and small game and we've decided to keep our camp going,so,ir's all good.

    Yep I agree it’s a fair system. I’ve applied solo when I was young, and hunted as part of a group. A lot of the camps that where always successful under the old system aren’t going to like it, but they had it good for a long time!

    I’ll hunt in an area also in a group for the last 15 years and have never had a problem getting 2 tags and I think our group will not have a problem at getting tag’s for many years to come I think a big group will have no problems at all

    High point count hunters applying in a low point count WMU and you'll be guaranteed at least one tag. Our southern home area is the exact opposite.
