My brother and I are planning a Region Y bowhunt in 2013. My understanding is that it is usually close to a 100% draw for this region. When I read the regs, I see two different draws (random draw and preference points draw). It looks like for the best odds, I want in the random draw. Is this correct? Also, can I buy a $34 doe tag? If so, is this something that is available over-the-counter? Do we buy our archery stamps when we get there, or do we need to order them in advance too. Finally, is there any reason to put in now or can I wait until closer to the deadline?

Thanks for the info. This will be our first western hunt, and we are a bit overwhelmed trying to understand everything.
