    Default F&G to email drawing results

    I just recieved an email from fish and game that says they will be emailing each applicant for the drawings this year to cut down on crowding of the site.
    So I guess instead of hitting the refresh button we can just wait to get the results via email.
    This is what was sent

    Greetings,
    You are receiving this email because you applied for a big game drawing hunt, or for a Tier I or Tier II permit during the November-December 2012 application period. We write today to let you know that in addition to posting results online as we have done for many years, this year we will also send individual emails to each applicant. So, you can expect to receive an email from us on Friday, February 15, with your results. This new method of delivery by email is an effort to better serve hunters and reduce congestion on the website when the results are posted.
    By noon on February 15, you will find links to the results posted on the Alaska Department of Fish and Game website at hunt.alaska.gov (the hunting section) as well as on the homepage at adfg.alaska.gov.
    While you await the draw results and plan your next adventure, you might wish to check out our hunting web pages. You will find a wealth of information on hunt planning, evaluating full-curl Dall's sheep rams, and mountain goat and caribou sex identification (think you know how to identify a billy? Take the fun online quiz on the mountain goat hunting page and see!); as well as streaming video on judging legal moose and trophy brown bears, and field dressing and meat care. Start at hunt.alaska.gov to learn more.
    Also, we invite you to subscribe to our monthly online magazine about hunting, fishing, and wildlife in Alaska, Alaska Fish and Wildlife News at wildlifenews.alaska.gov. Browsing through the archives reveals articles about hunting bison, caribou, mountain goats and more. Subscribing is a great way to stay informed about fishing and hunting happenings as well as receive updates on research on the species you care about.
    Good luck in the draw and you'll hear from us again on Friday.
    Best Regards,
    Doug Vincent-Lang, Acting Director

    Lucky SOB!

    My wife and I both applied for permits. I got the email, she did not. We'll see if this system works. I am glad to see them taking steps to improve things.

    Here is what will happen in regards to me. I will not draw a single tag again this year, but I will have the pleasure of looking at the list and seeing that a buttload of nonresidents DID draw the tags I put in for. Then, I will be bitter for another year that I actually live here and pay the taxes to make this state run and conduct its business. Every other western state has freaking limits on non resident tags for controlled hunts (not special hunts). Yes, I am still bitter from last two years. Oh well, have fun hunting guys. lol
