    Default Drawing tag question

    I have a question about moose drawing tags coming up. So if you put in for 3 bull tags and one of them is 100 percent draw odds will you ever get one of your first 2 options since your only allowed one tag and you are basically guaranteed the one that is 100 percent odds? Or could you possibly draw one of your other choices first, then making you unable to get the 100 percent tag?

    -thanks

    You could still draw one of your first two choices. Basically, if you draw more than one tag, they give you the one that is your highest choice and then award the other one to the next person drawn out of that applicant pool. Also note that draw odds listed are for last year and are no guarantee of what the odds will be this year.

    It depends on your order of choice. If you make the 100% your first choice, then that is the tag you will receive, you won't get your other 2 choices and waste the $ for the second and 3 choice.

    If you make the 100% your third choice and lower percentage draws as first and second choice there is the probability to draw the low percentage choices first or second and if not you will get the 100% tag as your third choice.

    Got it, so same odds for the other two just have to make them #1 and #2 choice . I just thought maybe if one was a 100 percent regardless of preference you would never have a chance at the other two.
    Thanks guys

    Brian explained it pretty well. It is also described in the permit hunt supplement and on the ADF&G website (FAQ section I think, but not sure). Essentially, they assign a random number to every entry that comes in (if you put in for three moose, each one of those entries will have their own random number assigned). They will then sort the results and and the first X number of people in the list will have "won" that drawing tag. Once all that is done, they look to see if/when someone may have been selected for more than one animal of a specific species. In those cases, they take whichever one you listed as your highest priority and give you that one and then your permit from the other hunt gets bumped down the list to the next person in line. If, in your example, there is a 100% draw odds hunt as your third choice and you were selected for either your 1st or 2nd choice, then it would just mean that they give out less of the permits for the 3rd choice. It may also end up as what they refer to as an "undersubscribed" hunt and provide some other opportunity for others to get the permits that were not originally given out.
