I got my Az. Bull tag today in the mail.
Man, was I one lucky SOB.....haha
Tag # 31......
Kinda surprised me the amount of advertising on the tag backing ect.
I know it's not 0300 when I'm posting! haha
Check your mail,
Hows that go? Gotta believe!
Got my elk tag yesterday. Tag number 16 if that means anything.
#58 for me... random tag. Must have creeped one point to put me out in no man's land. I'll take it. Ed F
Got mine two days ago, but it's cow elk rifle, Unit 27... I want the meat!! I don't eat antlers!
Congratulations to all that got drawn, it's getting harder and harder!
Ed- It’s all that clean livin :)
^^^ You don’t know Ed....Lol! Good stuff guys, glad they’re rolling in...Least they got that part right! :-)
I haven't received it yet but I was #53. My odds were less than 10% to draw! Better to be lucky than good when in the hands of the internet gods! (grin)
Good luck on your hunts this year!
#93 5A Bull
+1 you guys
Living lucky is okay by me too!
Good luck, Robb
Scar : I also drew unit 27 cow elk. Been there 3 times in the past. Let me know if you want to compare notes / strategies etc.
Would tag #1 have been a bonus round draw?
I'm not sure how that number system works because my two sons and I drew tags #1, 2, and 3, but it was our second choice unit.
My son drew tag #1 on his second choice unit too
I got lucky tag #13. Maybe I'll get a 13 pointer on the 13th at 13:00 hours :-)
Curt, there is a flaw in the drawing system that G&F does not care about, and you were probably drawn due to that issue. If you have enough bonus points to be in the max point (20%) pool for your second choice, but not your first choice, you will automatically be issued your second choice in the bonus round without ever even being in the drawing. Therefore, you never actually ever had a chance to get your first choice. If there were at least 15 permits available in your second choice hunt, that's exactly what happened to you. In fact, with some species (not elk), the problem is so bad that people are issued their second choice and then there are permits left over after the drawing in their first choice! They're aware of the problem, they simply just don't care to fix it.
