    Smile Early draws

    Not sure I like having the drawing for sheep to be held this early. I was lucky and drew a tag for DS102, but all I can think about is my sheep hunt and it is still 6 month out. I think it is a little early to be this excited about my sheep hunt!

    So why did they change the drawing dates?

    This give time for people to plan leave and get ready for the hunt. It use to come out in June and the hunt starts in Aug. This wasn't enough time to get everything done. This is one reason I heard it changed.

    In addition to having more time to plan your hunt consider the following:

    In the old system, if I plan to hunt sheep I need to get my money down early with the transporter before he is totally booked or already has folks filling the areas I'd be most interesting in hunting. Then the draw results come out in June and I realize I won DS139. If I cancel the hunt with the transporter for the original plan I loose my deposit. Yet I want to use this tag I've tried to win for 12 years. OR do I forget making any plans and put all of my eggs in the 0.8% chance of drawing my tag?

    I like the new system.
