Getting drawn each year for seven years is pretty impressive. There are some guys on here who have been entering for more years than that and have never been drawn. I like the new online system because it's more convenient, but I agree that allowing multiple hunt entries makes the odds a little steeper.

I wonder if these first couple of years with the new system may knock out a higher percentage of guys that had lots of points due to the multiple entry options. It may level out some in two or three years.
There certainly were a lot of us with several points. If I had put in for half a dozen deer hunts instead of just the chap and did not have low point hunt partners on my entry, I bet my 20 something points would have easily drawn this year.

I don't really have a problem with the new system so far. Putting in for multiple hunts is good for me personally. I have a lot of points in a lot of categories and it paid off in getting drawn for the alligator hunt. Now if I can just draw that bighorn tag!
Age and knowledge don't always come together. Sometimes you just get the age.
