    App Deadline

    Well today was the last day to apply in Nevada. I have been stacking points for years and would now like to cash some in, so I picked a lot of units where I hope to have a realistic chance, at least for Lope & deer. I have 13 points for most critters.

    I am hoping the draw odd on MM are reasonably close. My 5th choices have 20% and 30% odds so that is what I am thinking I have?

    Anybody do those raffles they have in Nevada? I was thinking of it given my situation this year, but I can't find myself participating due to the fact I am not in favor of distributing public land tags that way. I mean it's better than auction tags, but still I don't like the concept and think they should be in the public draw for those that wait their turn.

    Do the sales for those stop today also? Or do they run that a while?

    The raffle hunts make tons of money, and I wont participate, just because im a leery Californian and think all those type of systems have a corruption level. TRUST, one thing the CA sportsman is missing in his state DFG. Bummer

    The MM draw odds for NV are way off. They only use data from everyone's first choice. Look at the NDOW Bonus Point Data spreadsheets and you will find that the actual odds are much different.

    Ya, but I figure if all 5 of my choices were 2nd tier hunts with an average of 4%/13 pt. units, my overall odds should be about 4% for getting one of the 5. Does this make sense? Maybe not, if they are heavily chosen for other's 4th & 5th piicks?

    That is a cool resource! I've never seen that. It makes me a bit more confident in my draw odds. I usually check a draw odd statistic off a website the real odds are much different.

    Also don't forget to call the biologist for the area your looking into as well. They are a great help.
