I applied for a new goat hunt....... DG720 (new this year it replaced DG718 and DG719) and checked the site yesterday and I did not draw this hunt. No big deal I thought, odds where less than 10% for the hunts in years past that DG720 replaced (DG720 had 35 total permits available)

But after the Fairbanks Daily News miner published the hunt winners in the newspaper this morning, DG720 was not even listed. So I went back through the hunt winners and not one person of the 4000+ I went through (starting from "A" last names) drew this permit. I went through the Winter Applicants spreadsheet and found at least 3 people before I even got to 300 applicants, I quite reviewing after that.

If anybody out there has drawn this permit or knows someone who has, let me know. Maybe some of you all who applied for this hunt are wondering the same thing as I am........... did they even draw for this hunt.

For statistics sake, I added all the permits available from the winter draw supplement for goats........619 available. This is a differant number then the statisics of TOTAL Goat permits awarded vs applicants that I read from a previous post on this site a few hours ago. I think it said 563 permits were awarded.

What do you all think????

hmmm... maybe they're changing it to a registration? :hmmmm:

Don't know. Sounds odd otherwise - best of luck sorting it out.

Interesting. My wife applied for this permit and like you I didn't give it much of a second thought when she didn't draw. But nobody at all won this permit? Hmm... I can understand changing the # of permits available based on the most recent population surveys, but if nobody at all was awarded a permit, perhaps some refunds are in order. It's a shame to waste one of the three chances on a draw that isn't performed, if that is indeed the case.

Let us know what you find out.

Same thing happened with the Ketchikan Goat draw hunt down here. They went from one area, to 3, and then didn't draw any tags for all 3. Hoping it's a glitch, and we still have a shot at drawing one of those tags.

I was going to recommend to Boyd to give me yours and that should make up for the problems.
