Im looking for some opinions related to the draw system. Under the current system, if you draw a permit you can either hunt with that permit or do a general season hunt. For example, I drew a cow permit for the Delta area this year. I did a mid Sept float hunt for moose first, I didnt score so went to Delta to harvest a moose in Oct. Basicly I used the Cow permit as a backup plan, which worked great for me.
What do you all think if the current system was changed to were if you draw a permit that is your hunt. For example, if I draw a FMA cow permit, that is my moose hunt for the season. Thats not to say if you dont score during the permit dates that you couldnt try some where else later.
I was thinking about the number of permits that are issued each year but never get used because many draws are used simply as a backup plan.
I thought that would stop a lot of people from putting in for pemits as a backup, giving others who do apply a better chance of drawing those types of permit.
Dont get me wrong, using it as a backup plan has worked great for me over the years, Ive drawn 3 moose permits in 3 years, but dont think that was the intent for these permits, not intened to be someones backup plan.
Just curious of what you guys thought.
