I’ve always looked at this in the glass half empty way, thinking that OIL draw is a disadvantage as you only get one chance at a YES, while now I see the advantage of having only one potential NO!

Come on SHEEP tag!

I had to dispute the charge with my credit card company in August a couple years ago because Idaho wouldn't refund my NR sheep app.

Might take a while this year. They're trying out a cutting edge new process, they're gonna double check the results before they release them! Last year they had the public proof it, to save on labor costs.

Just gave me an idea that would increase draw odds and revenue. How about no refunds? See who’s serious about a tag then :unsure:
I bet it would get the odds in double digits anyway on some of the OIL hunts. That is some serious cash to throw out there at 2700 ish dollars I think it was this year. Would be still be worse odds than putting $2700 on black twice, 25 percent odds on that, and then paying for Canada. Even at $1000 a tag but no refund would really be interesting. I bet I spend that on raffles every year anyway. I applied for one of the more "easy" to draw but physical moose units along the MT border this year after about 15 years of trying for SE units, here is hoping 🤞.

Where did that come from?

Pretty sad that the state of Nevada is going to run a much more complicated draw in 10 days, not 10 business days, 10 total days, meanwhile IDFG can’t even get us results on the simplest of draws in 16 days

Look at Wyoming elk…NR have to apply in January for a May drawing. Thing is they give a May 19 date for when results will be available. Not this guessing game “by early June” when some years it is as early as May 13 (2021). They want to have trust in their system? Be transparent and consistent. Why does my application show a NR fee in the info part of my application? FnG said they “are aware” of the incorrect fee statement, doesn’t mean my resident application was counted as NR. It doesn’t give me good feelings about the group running this outfit.

Mine shows the nonresident fee too, hadn’t paid any attention to it up to this point, probably how things like 14 extra nonresident tags awarded and taken back happen🤷🏼‍♂️

I also noticed the Nonresident fee and called too make sure I wasn’t in the Nonresident draw pool. They said something about it not being entered in correctly but it wouldn’t have any affect in the draw. I don’t feel good about it either!!!!! You’d think a draw that simple wouldn’t be a **** show every year!!!

IF&G has egg on their face with the way tags are issued. Starting with Nonresident issuance of the deer & elk tags in November to the no confidence in a cleanly run draw for OIL tags. They should do something positive to give everybody confidence in the issuance of tags!!! I also believe they should set a release date that’s 10 days after the last day to apply, and release the results on that date!

I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again, with a draw as simple as they have going they need to actually put everybody’s name in a big bucket and hold a live drawing event complete with pancake breakfast/big lunch, they could raise extra money for conservation as a lot of hunters would attend and spend $10-20/plate. An added benefit is everyone would get to see the process and I would have more faith in that than I do their computers. Maine does it with their moose draws or did last I knew. Another benefit to doing it that way is it would cost pennies on the dollar compared to what they are paying to have somebody write a simple random number generator program for them now.

They could have that screwed up in the first 5 minutes!

Look at that…woke up to an email with the Wyoming elk results, one day early. All I got from IDFG was an email asking me to buy super tags…maybe after the moose results😉

what a bunch of simp ass bitches! The date for results is June 10, you knew that when you applied. Everyday before that is actually a gift from the IDFG.
Yes, it really doesn’t make a difference if they come out May 13 or June 10. The date, however, has never been June 10. If they want to make it June 10, then draw the line in the sand, don’t release them early. I didn’t mind waiting 4 months to get the “unsuccessful” for Wyoming elk. They had a specific date the draw results would be out. No daily checking. Trophy species include so few tags, it could be done in days. But we get this “results by early June” which is a bit broad. But I agree, not a big deal.

Don’t forget your appreciation post for the IDFG for getting the results out weeks in advance.
