Only state I know of where this happens.
I am finding this out the hard way. A few states I looked into require you to buy the non-resident hunting license before you can apply and in Colorado, if you don't win, you get your fee refunded minus "admin charge". Montana non resident is $1,001 for elk/deer license.

Same here, just a point building year.
My sister's son was drawn for Daughtry.
My brother is down there right now.
Once the wind dies down, they might have a good hunt with the cold.

Who's your brother? We're here now. Slept in to let the weather blow thru a lil and doing a mid day sit.
My 9 year old is recovering from flu so we're just hunkered down and waiting.

Think I remember them at orientation. They were hunting by HQ so we never crossed paths again. They do any good?

How did everyone do on the drawings? I drew 4 out of 56 applications. That's $226 in application fees. Alligator, 2 javelina, and gun deer management.

I had 7 pref points and was drawn for Exotic only at GSP. I submitted for 28 hunts. What were your pref points on the hunts you were drawn for?

I drew in three and made a standby.

Drew,
Deer archery
Javi
Turkey

Standby,
Deer management

I've drawn 4 Hunts in 12 previous years including rifle deer in 2015 and then draw 3 this year. Could be looking at quite a dryspell after this....

i've been putting in for the rifle hunts for 36 years without being drawn. i went to 4 standby's this year and they drew 1 card out 49 cards at one WMA and the odds for the other ones weren't much better. Maybe next year is what i say every year,

I got drawn for Teniente and Atascosa Archery but after reading how difficult the hunting was I opted out. Guess I won't be putting in for those next year. Do they do anything if you do not attend a hunt you were drawn for.

All they do is hopefully give the spot to a standby hunter.

They don't have standby's for the NWR hunts. Only on some of the state land hunts. The draw system does do a second draw for the spots where folks haven't paid for their permits on time.
