The actual drawing hasn't occurred yet. Comparing the seed numbers and your application numbers only give you an idea of your chances. The information you are looking for won't be available until after the drawing.I followed the instructions in the above link from Wapiti Bob but the only options I see are for Spring Bear? Nothing for the deer tag I applied for. Am I missing something?
This is a great example. Something else to add. In the 75% pool when the draw reaches a level were there are not enough tags for the applicants with the same amount of points, the seed numbers are used as well.
I'am 24,000 over for sheep tag, 2 tags for the unit might have a chance good luck to everyoneHow to use these numbers.
Take the number of applicants from last year and divide it into 10,000,000
Example 10,000,000 divided by 500 applicants is 20,000. If there are two sheep tags available you would want your number to be over the seed number by less than 40,000. This is not exact, the numbers are random and can fall anywhere. Also you are using the number of applicants from last year, there could be a significant change that will change the odds as well.
Checking the seed numbers only lets you know if you have a chance. Most people checking their numbers learn that no love is headed their way.
