Nothing in a random draw guarantees your kids will ever pull a tag. 2-3 year wait periods do nothing because the app pools are too big. Points won't work for top end units if you miss a year.
For some reason hunters think they deserve a tag, and a tag in the top units. it's not going to happen regardless of what system is used. Too many people wanting a few tags. 2000 apps trying for 10 tags doesn't take much math to figure nobody is getting a tag for a hell of a long time, points or no points.
