The following post is not whining....I swear.
I've been putting in for Delta Bison - bull or cow - since I was 38 years old. I've had no luck.... and I'm now 64. My point isn't... poor me. Rather, I think, with the large number of people who apply for those hunts, it's unjustifiable to allow anyone to put in again after having been successfully drawn once. Too many hunters are never drawn. A Delta Bison permit should be "Once In A Lifetime". There are other bison hunts that can be applied for... Farewell, Copper River.
My odds of being drawn wouldn't improve, but each permit drawn would go to someone who has never had a permit before.... not someone, with good fortune, who gets a second blessing from AkF&G.
"Once In A Lifetime" would increase, although modestly, the number of hunters who get the privilege of hunting Delta Bison. It would certainly be more equitable than the current system.
