The management office could go by draw order, but a few years ago we drew numbers from a hat.
Yea, sometimes they go by draw number, sometimes out of a hat, and sometimes they go by ability to access the area. If the hunt is in a rugged or muddy area, they might give the harder to get to compartments to folks that have atvs. They will also try to accommodate someone with a disability. Depends on the folks running the hunt.
