And even if we hadnít been under this system for three decades, Iíd still disapprove of full random. I agree with Airborne that to only system worse than that is the preference point system.

Lol.. This line of thinking is standard for the government/it's programs.

That's why out of 330 Million Americans we have only two candidates for president, and both are 73+ old white men. The system is there too long and too hard to change.

That's why the gov continues to rack up debt and do things the stupid way no matter how many times it's been pointed out.

Outside of that, I get your point. At some time though - there has to be a cap. The fact that we will break 30 points required in the next couple years is getting absolutely absurd. There will be people in our life that literally have 40+ points. There has to be an end point.

It’s interesting to me that someone will put in for an elk unit for 20+ years and complain about never drawing a tag when there are tons of great units they could have drawn 2, or three tags within that same time period. Don’t be so stubborn, change your application strategy and you’ll hunt more frequently. Or at least if you’re going to make the conscious decision to be stubborn and apply for 2 decades to hunt once, don’t complain. There are other options, after all

I used to think Utah had a pretty slick system. But then point creep kept ballooning and ballooning. While I admit there's a tough luck side to a true random draw, it is the only system that sustainably treats applicants equally.

But I also really love living somewhere that I don't have to rely on the draw to have more tags in my pockets than I could ever use in one year. Enjoy your dregs, peasants
