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
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.
