Permits have yet to even be awarded & we have people all ready whining. If you do not like the system move back to the lower 48! You can have your preference points & once in a life time tags. Here in AK everyone has a fair & equal chance. I have had times of drought & times of drawing multiple tags. I too get frustrated when I know people have drawn a tag more than once or on thier first try on a species in a particular area & I am still waiting for my first crack. That is just the luck of the DRAW. You take the good w/ the bad. The system will not be perfect for everyone, but I think it serves us all fairly. Even if I do not draw a GOLDEN tag today I will still hunt w/ someone who has, go on a general hunt, or a registration hunt. I wish everyone the best of luck.
I personally get more frustrated over the people that draw the tags & have no clue what it is for.---- "I drew DS120 can anyone tell me anything about this permit?" I love that!
