April 28. Took some digging but somewhere in the Regs it states that draw results will be available on line or by phone April 28. Also states that refunds for unsuccessful draw will be within 10 day of drawing applied back to your cc or a little longer if you paid by cash

Just recently they ran it right up to the published date didn’t they?

From: smarba

ohio: yes, and EVERYONE plus their dog was whining and complaining that NMDGF wasn't as early as they usually are. The amount of calls from people asking "are we there yet?" probably made NMDGF rethink announcing early. Time will tell.

4/16 in 2019

I don’t ever pay attention. I wait till someone texts or calls me asking what I drew then I realize the draws are out. Makes the waiting game go by much faster!

agreed butcher!

I didn’t even put in for my hunts till the night before the deadline! Just slipped my mind and then I was on the fence about even putting in this year.

I sure hope so! Thanks for posting the past dates!

My guess is 21 or maybe the department of wildlife sticks to the 28th..

From: Darrell

Hopefully this week. However, I refuse to get my hopes up as my chances of drawing are probably less than winning a substantial amount on a lottery ticket and I'm too cheap and too good at math to waste money on lottery tickets. :)

2022 guess is April 20th..

05-Apr-22
Same here. Gonna be exactly a week early

From: mrelite

I would prefer it before the turkey hunt cause I would hunt where I drew.

Wishful thinking JP, but it sure would be nice.

Why don't they just pick a date and stick with it? Why the big mystery? I put in for moose in ME and NH and they give a date for the draw. Simple.

From: smarba

BC, not sure if you know the history but many years ago NM set a date, then apparently wanted to prove they were super-efficient by releasing early. So from then on it's been about a week early and everyone has come to expect it. I'm with you. They should just state a date and stick to it.

From: Muddyboots

Lighten up. If you don't want to know early, just don't go online, starting now. Some of us WANT TO KNOW ALREADY.

X2 muddy. I could think of about a million and one other things to bitch about.

From: BC

Not bitching, just asking a question.

Easy enough, on the posted date check your results. The date for big game results is printed in the proclamation every year, it’s no secret, simple.

There was one time they actually held to their published date.

The draw is complete. They're just doing an audit now to make sure the results are all legit.

I think the draw is done ....I think so..

Could it be tomorrow?? Anyone got any backdoor action??… (not the Santa Fe type of backdoor action).

If you log in to your account and your application status reads "Pending", it means absolutely nothing.

From: ohiohunter
13-Apr-22
I thought pending meant I already drew, they’re just figuring out which choice I drew.

That's some funny stuff, I kinda had some of the same feelings when I found out the turkey hunt started before Easter, I wanted to know who the f keeps changing the dates.....

My birthday is April 21st and I know of no other gift that would be better than an elk tag in the Gila.

Just saying…
