    We have handled multiple moose at once. Some with a very long pack. I'm sure it could be done with bison also.

      I'll do the same as I always do.. dump all six bison chances on the March Farewell tag.. pay the state money.. be disappointed..

        I love this time of year if February 21st is second Christmas then this is when I sit on Santa's lap and tell him what I want (I also make sure I'm a good boy and make sure I don't have any HT not reported yet).

        First off I have a running total of the number of applications each tag gets, I find all the hunts I want to hunt, then of those I figure out which have the highest odds of getting drawn. I then put in 6 times for those tags.

        Why 6? well the difference in say DS102 between 1 tag and 6 is 0.8% and 4.88%. Most years My odds of drawing are between 60-80%. Also since the state allowed you to apply multiple times for each tag the average applications per tag has doubled, some haven't even doubled. if you are willing to spend a little more money up front you increase your chances greatly.


        The beauty of our drawing system is there are great hunts for almost every species that are HT and require no draw.

          stupid question I’m sure, but a guy can have un-reported tags floating around if the season is still open right? Like GL000, or RB300, when the season goes till next spring. I wouldn’t think that would matter, but sure would be lame to get flagged for something like that.

            you're fine, I do leave my Black bear tags open and have drawn just make sure that your tags which the hunts are closed are taken care of (ie Registration tags)

              The only thing better than draw tag season is seeing all the tin hat nut jobs talk about how the system is rigged!

                Well it is rigged. Only ADFG employees draw [emoji85]

                Well and my wife. Maybe she knows somebody down there........

                    Did they change the moose for 14? I thought last year there was something that said only 3 of the 6 could go for antlersss or (either sex) hunts, but I can't find it in the supplement.

                      Pretty sure that change happened last year. You could always put all of your choices on antlerless hunts - the restriction was that only 3 could be for bull hunts.

                        Brian is correct. That change went into effect last year. I just checked the hunt supplement from last year and it said that it was "NEW" and that you could now put in for up to 6 bull moose applications. It wasn't anything unique to unit 14 either, it was statewide. Before, you were limited to a max of 3 bull moose hunt entries, so if you wanted to use all 6 of your entries, at least 3 had to be for antlerless hunts.

                          I went 13 years with nothing then went three years in a row drawing tags and now nothing for the last several years. even with my not so good draw odds I'd still not be in favor of any kind of bonus point system. I do believe that for the most part its all random but I have seen a few cases that make me believe that there are some instances where some chosen few people (usually F&G employees or affiliated somehow) have artificial extreme good luck year after year.
                          But its still fun to wait for the results to come out and I will continue to hope for the tag of my dreams. No different than going to Vegas and dumping money into a machine hoping for a big pay day

                          I’ll definitely second the OP of this thread calling the yearly drawing hunt lottery the “annual donation to the state of Alaska”. In 29 years of continuous Alaska residency and putting in for multiple species resident hunts every year without exception...random drawings my foot!!! I’ve gotten one pathetic cow moose tag back in 2005, to show for my faithful 28 years of “donations” (always $75 or more)!!! There are way too many guys like Nick Muche posting above...going for 6 continuous years of “excellent permits”!!! I will say I’ve never put all 6 species choices on one hunt...I guess this is that year!! I’m all for some type of bonus point system based on years of residency and number of times put in and not drawn, like done in some other states drawing hunt permits...as well as more opportunities for disabled/ handicapped hunters. Good luck to everyone in this years draw...

                            Is it wrong to assume that if a guy looks at the draw odds in the back of this years supplement, those figures are “permit applications”, not individuals. So if a guy puts in all 6 choices on any given tag, you can multiply those odds by 6?

                                For example, if there is a 2% chance, and you put in 6 times. Each "time" has 2% chance of being selected. You don't have a 12% chance of getting the tag. If that was true, if there was a 30% chance and you put in 6 times (Example unit 13 non resident moose) if would be a 100% draw.
