Default Points Transfer

I got to thinking about the points that some of our "Elder" hunters have and are likely to never draw that tag (OIL, LE) and if the DWR offered a transfer of those points to another (younger) hunter in order to move the point creep to an advantage of incoming first time applicants.


What say ye? allow it, or abolish the idea?

Nope, but then I am greedy.

They already have the mentor program where gramps and grandma can still put in and draw the tag and take Jr out hunting while they sit in the rocking chair in the back of the truck.

Why set up another program?

Heck no. We already have a massive problem with the bonus point butt plug. We need folks to move through the system and phase out of the system. This includes some older sportsmen dropping out or even passing on. Rather than looking for ways to further clog up the system, we should focus on moving more people through and relieving the butt plug. The ultimate answer is larger and better herds but that is likely a pipedream.

Yeah, this would be a terrible idea, and would worsen the problems we already have. It would increase the advantage of some, while punishing others who were in line before these lucky applicants who were lucky enough to have someone gift them points.

Recycling points into the pool is not the solution to point creep.

I think it would only add to the log jam point system we already have. I do however, like the mentor program. I will hopefully be able to use it when I draw a Desert Sheep and give my, then teenage son the hunt of his lifetime. I’m sitting on 20 sheep points and he’s 10 years old now, hopefully I don’t draw for a few more years.

It would make things 1,000,000 times worse.

Think about it, rich guys would suddenly start buying points from max tier holders. Points suddenly would have major $$$ value. Other people wanting to make a buck would start entering loads of other non-hunting family members and friends into the draw, hoping to bank and sell points down the road.

You would see an explosion of new applicants, and a dramatic worsening of the odds.
