Weighted System Works
Posted by profishguide on Apr 21 2006
Most of us just want that one tag of a lifetime, with a weighted system like Washington uses the longer you apply the more chance you have of drawing. I applied for the same Elk tag for 6 years (36 points)before drawing it, sure I knew my chances of drawing again were low (1 point), but I applied for tags that were not as sought after and drew again. If you did not apply for more than one year you lost your points for that species. This system favors people who are serious and apply for tags every year. AK could adopt something similar with added peferance points for residents.

ps I had a friend who got the same tag as me his first try, I'd rather be lucky than good any day :')
