:|. I haven’t tried it. I’ve just heard it works. A friend of a friend told me and I figured you guys would know, since you bowsite guys know everything. ;)

Well, it does work, sometimes... ya just gotta know what you're lookin for... you'll be disappointed and heartbroken if you get impatient and rush into things.

There used to be a guy from Game and Fish that kept everybody posted over on MM, then a cpl diip shiits called the dept to verify and that all came to an end. They got peeved and also quit posting early results.

The best way to close any backdoors is to tell somebody.

"Backdoor" means something different here in NM when draw results are looming LOL.

WapitiBob nailed it: there have been various iterations of methods to obtain an unoffical hint in advance that one drew; pending credit card charges, inability of the system to allow one to purchase a landowner tag, or whatnot. But fools started touting the methods publicly and flooding G&F with requests for confirmation that their methods were actually reflective of drawing success, so one by one these early warning system loopholes have been closed down over the past several years.

Remember the good old days when you got a postcard in the mail. Usually mid August.

Chlorophyll more like borophyll am I right, boys?

Yes, back then you just got ready for Sept because you knew you'd probably draw and when you did find out, you only had a few weeks to finalize getting ready.

Good one WFG! Also HDE!!!

I recall some years the Forests closing down due to fire danger before the draw results came out and hoping they'd open back up in time to hunt, let alone scout.

"I recall some years the Forests closing down due to fire danger..." It's the driest I've ever seen in the Jemez. We've been hauling water to our trees. We'll see what happens when they open the gates on Sunday.

The anticipation will be far far better than the facts for most people. For the majority the longer the hope remains alive the better because hope is all they will have had in the end........and a refund check

13-Apr-18
Yep I was just think I don't know why I I'm riding giddy anticipation for something that is almost always a big let down maybe its the "almost" that keeps me going...

From: Whip

Looking on the bright side, the word Pending is far more pleasant to see than Unsuccessful, which is the most likely result of having the results posted. Looks like I get to keep my hopes up at least through the weekend.
