    Never been sucessful yet.
    They are apparently going back to the beginning of the present draw system...

    If the tags issued to licensed hunters are based on success rate management with available road access then it shouldn’t be a problem. It’s what we can’t manage that is the problem not the logging roads.

    I hope thatís how it works. Was wondering how they would handle the calf tags.

    This is straight forward, if you applied the last 5 years you have 5 pts. Now, if you applied the last 2 years, skipped a year (didn't apply)then appiled the two previous years to the skipped year. Would you have 2 points or 4 points?
    I would think skipping a year would restart the point count?

    Thank you Deer Hunter it was a very Memorable hunt. Many unanswered questions that we will have to wait to find out. I do recall reading in the preliminary talks about this new system they were including surplus tags and outfitter tags as a re-set of saved points. Hopefully this is not the case.

    I like this new system except it should have been implemented before the moose population has gotten into trouble. The selective harvest was supposed to increase the number of moose, but it didn't and nothing was done. That is what's sad.

    Maybe I am wrong in what I have read/interpreted but it appears you do not have to apply every year to maintain points. Seems odd if that is the case. Most other jurisdictions you need to apply every year to maintain your eligibility. Seems the current approach of not losing points until you take a tag will make it hard to predict what points you will need each year to draw a tag in a unit. Based on what they have proposed seems like someone who hasnt purchased or applied in 5 years will be able to come out of the wood work and get a tag o or the guy who has applied every year. Going to make it hard to guarantee a tag. As there will be unknowns

    It's my understanding that points will only accumulate with the number of draws entered.
    When you're dead,you don't know you're dead. The pain is felt by others. It's the same when you're stupid.

    Still someone right now may have applied the last 6 years then not apply for 5 then come out of the wood work. Do they have 6 points?. Do points remain with u until u draw a tag? Lots of jurisdictions make u apply every year or buy a point to maintain your status.
