Thread: CSN? Bonus Points? HUH?

  1. #1

    Default CSN? Bonus Points? HUH?

    According to the F&G newsletter in my mailbox I have been lucky enough to receive a Customer Service Number for the futuristic bonus points system adopted by the BoG & soon to be implemented by AK Fish and Game.

    Is there any information on the bonus points system that is headed our way? I see the online application for draw hunts has a slot for the CSN number. I figure I'll add my CSN number and see what happens with it in the following years.

    Any thoughts on this new system?

    Default looks like the Colorado points system

    From the little that I have seen, it looks similar to the Colorado points system.

    Check out Colorado DOW (Division of Wildlife) and see what their website tells you.

    Default Nelchina

    We already have the bonus points system in place for the Nelchina caribou hunt (started last year). It will likely (unfortunately) expand into other hunts in the near future.

    To the best of my understanding, the point system has not yet been designed. It was set into motion at the last BoG meeting in the spring, though, so they're trying to get ahead of the game by assigning numbers now.

    My wife received a CSN too, but it's only two digits not the prescribed four. I called F&G to see what I could do to get the number straightened out. I figured since we received the letter, and the online draw app has a slot for the CSN there was some slight importance to the whole deal. What I was told by F&G is none of it matters, not to worry about it, blah blah blah. I even attempted a funny to lighten the gentleman's demeanor and received a stern answer in response. Geeeessshh what a tough crowd F&G is. lol

    Default Why have them?

    The wife threw our letters in the trash by mistake, I called F&G to see if I could stop by and get our numbers again but was told they mean nothing. My responce to the gentelman was "if they mean nothing why send them out", I was told the system they were intended for is not in place and they really have no merit on any hunt applications.

    Can someone enlighten me, do we really need these?

    Would be interesting to know how many letters went out at $00.42 EACH. Postage alone would be $42,000.00 per 100,000 letters. Plus administrative costs....... If it means nothing, someone should be "FIRED".

    Are there any proposals being drafted for the next cycle to do away with the up-and-coming bonus point system?
