Just checked my statement have a $44 CPW pending charge. Assuming I drew elk.

From: Destroyer350
03-Jun-20
Elk is $55.43 and Pronghorn is $40.24

From: Quinn @work
03-Jun-20
$44 wouldn't be elk as the tag is over $50. It may be pronghorn if you applied?

From: Destroyer350

From: KHunter
03-Jun-20
Believe that is a wrong assumption. Nothing costs $44 and that amount is less than an elk tag...plus elk is not processed yet.

$40.24 is deer and same price for lopers when that posts. Plus habitat stamp if not bought already

@2xLung

I have two charges on my CC, one for $55.43 and another for $15.43. I used my CC for both my son and I and am confused as hell on the $15.43 charge.

From: Firsty

Drew unit 75 with 13 pp!!

From: diggerson
04-Jun-20
^^^You may have used a common CC, but your CPW accounts for yourself and son are separate, no? Tags sold through seperate CPW accounts will show up as separate CC charges. My boys also have separate CPW accounts, linked to my common CC, and I'm seeing separate charges, just as you described. You're just seeing a youth tag separate from your tag.

From: Lark Bunting
04-Jun-20
I thought so too but my son turned 18 last month so I assumed he would be charged adult pricing for elk (resident). Also, youth elk tags are $15.68, not $15.43. We'll know soon enough I guess.

From: Brotsky
04-Jun-20
I successfully drew my preference point! Woohoo!

From: diggerson
04-Jun-20
Ah, you're right, I didn't pay attention to the CENTS and that that makes no SENSE :) Maybe that's why CPW is taking a little time to update their website. Re: the youth tag, Item #5 under Age Requirements in the youth hunting section indicates 17 or younger at time of application receive the reduced-cost and youth preference. Looks like your boy slid in just under the wire.

From: Inshart

We put in as a group. My cc was hit yesterday - nothing on his. He called, she said not unusual as they are still processing.

From: Lark Bunting
04-Jun-20
I'd be happy if just one of us drew but it would be amazing if we both drew. I keep checking emails. =)

Any nonresidents drawn 76?

04-Jun-20
I got a successful draw email for deer yesterday and they still haven't charged my credit card.

My elk application still says "entered". I'm chalking it up to delays in the system and remaining optimistic!

From: Lark Bunting
04-Jun-20
Looks like CPW's website has updated Preference Points. Suddenly both mine and my son's went to zero. I'll take that as a good sign.

My $15.43 charge was my daughter's youth tag. No tag for me, but she's in the game.

From: MQQSE

Another point for me. That’s all I applied for. 20 now. Maybe next year I’ll apply for a hunt.

Drew 49. Gonna scheme ways to get most days. (2 weeks +)

From: Glunt@work

My son and I drew our elk tags. Not great hunting but close to home. We drew deer for a nice WT unit if our permission holds out.

From: Hackbow
04-Jun-20
OTC for me. Good thing I'm an expert at being told no.

From: Tlhbow
04-Jun-20
Four of us drew first choice elk.

04-Jun-20
Myself, my wife and Native Okie drew 2nd choice 77 with no points. He drew his Wyoming tag and I got invited by a friend to tag along on his Valle Vidal NM hunt, so we‘ll be turning them in for a refund and points.

04-Jun-20
I'm bummed. Did not draw 49 with 6 points. Last year 62% with 5 points drew.

Last two times I hunted there I drew with 2 points.

Damn the publicity!

From: jordanathome

I may not kill elk but by golly I can bank some points..........LOL sob

From: pav
05-Jun-20
I hear you Mike. Twenty years ago, I researched and selected a LE draw area that only required one point to draw. Had some great hunts there over the years, but that one point unit is now a four point unit and climbing.

From: maxracx
05-Jun-20
winner, winner chicken dinner!!! Our group of 3 drew!!!

From: Padfoot
05-Jun-20
We got our unit 67 tags with 3 points. I figured we had a 40% chance to get the tag. We started accumulating our points A year before they changed the pay for points scheme.

Based on all the point creep I was concerned that we might never catch up. We never hunted 67 but elk are elk and well put in the time. That’s half the fun of it. Glad we’re going and there’s no more uncertainty!

05-Jun-20
Got the elk and deer point. Otc this year. Can’t wait for September!

Mark, looks like 50/50. Would guess next year or the year after.

A lot of tags given out in the new draw units. No surprise there.

From: TxHuntr
06-Jun-20
I saw that Jeremy. Units 71, 72. 73, 711have 1180 leftover either sex tags.

06-Jun-20
Got unit 4 and 5. New ground for me. Got to get busy getting in shape and doing some more research.

From: Aspen Ghost

Mark, two NRs applied with 27 points this year for unit 2 archery and did not get it. The one with 28 points got it.

So if those two apply again next year they will have 28 points and one will get the single NR permit. At 27 points after this years draw you will have to wait at least 2 more years for those two to work through before you have a chance. Then you'll be competing with the two 26 pointers who applied this year and now have 27 points like you. If you were one of those 2 then your odds will be 50/50 in 3 years. If not your odds will be 33% in 3 years. Of course, that assumes that none of the other 300 people who have 28 or more points right now and didn't apply for that permit this year decide to apply for that permit in the future. If they do it could be quite a while before you draw.

Isn't point creep fun.

From: Treeline
07-Jun-20
Ahh, I was thinking Mark was one of the two with 27 going in this year.

If Mark was at 26 going in, Aspen Ghost is right - it will be 30 to 31 points or so before he draws...

Crazy to think that when he started building points, any elk tag in the state could be drawn with 5 points...

From: Ucsdryder
07-Jun-20
Treeline, I agree. 3 decades. Man think about what you were doing 30 years ago.

This is the moose/elk/goat issue and why you can’t do a preference point system. Too many people want to hunt it and not enough tags.

Drew unit 76 as a nonresident, time to amp up that workout

From: huntperch
07-Jun-20
Kinda sad to think but mortality comes into play at some point. Or the ability to get hunt.

From: Huntcell
07-Jun-20
Yes 5 points should have gotten me a Ranching for Wildlife tag back then but that year NR were excluded. Then low number of NR tags for NW corner became less and less as years went by, tags were diverted for this group and that group, started allocation for a random draw , reduce tags because herd was downsized, so it’s 1 NR tag now, next step is to alternate ever other year tag available , tag not available .

Oh ya maybe no tags as the wolf’s begin to get established.

Maybe a draw to pick up the left over mega racked from Wolf kills.
