Cubing loyalty points?

“ Loyalty Points for each application will then be cubed for the drawing (example: 2 Loyalty Points would be 2 x 2 x 2 = 8 points for the drawing).”

That's not true, I'm not banned nor is there such a thing as 'excessive hunting'.

Besides, all I said was I'm not wasting my money.....which is true.

The first rounds of applications were due yesterday. I'm assuming they will draw those tomorrow.

I'm looking forward to planning out my pronghorn hunt. I know I'll probably end up with the dreaded pending second draw on my status but hey it's exciting to dream. I applied my son on a gator hunt. Hopefully he'll draw it!!!

My son got pending second draw on his youth alligator.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed on the antelope. I put in for all available hunts (private land and the rita blanca).

Itís one I never expect to draw. I always put my dad on the application, but keep refreshing the TPWD site to get my rejection notice all day anyways!

It happens but the chances are even slimmer then the initial draw sense we are waiting on someone who has been picked already to not pay the permit fee.

They cube you points now. So if you have 3 points you have 27 entries (3x3x3 = 27)

When you apply in a category your points go up by one. Is this what you are seeing?

Pronghorn hunts are being drawn....so far pending second draw for me. Gotta couple more to go.


Edit:

The private lands pronghorn categories went to pending second draw for me. The Rita Blanca hasn't updated as of yet.

That would be awesome!!!

It's been a little while (20 minutes or so) since mine turned to pending second draw on the private lands pronghorn. Still nothing on the Rita Blanca grasslands. I'm hoping the system isn't glitchy again today.
