I'm sure the odds will be staggering. I just hope that this will help the dept. get some more funds. It's kind of a neat idea to raise money. I am curious to know how many tickets they will sell. I would assume it would a large amount. The question is, does a person buy the cheaper ticket or will the more expensive one give him better odds? If a person wins that trifecta, that will be a lot of money to come up with to buy the tags (assuming they would buy mtn goat, moose and sheep, or bison). I would choose one of those three.
Mountain lion, wolf, and bear are included!!??--A lot of good that does somebody since you can buy it over the counter!
On the other hand, if the odds of drawing are 0.01, he's all in, as there is no where I'm aware of that will give you a good elk hunt for a hundred bucks.
My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives.
Drelk is wrong. I'm going to win. I saw it in a dream . . .
I read the news article as its 10 tags (moose, sheep, goat, elk, deer etc) and they draw them specifically for the Reg Raffle and you don't get to choose them. Only w/ the Trifecta do you get to choose. That makes the most logical sense as if they don't do it that way then the possibility exists for Fish and Game to give out an addittional 11 sheep tags (possibily for the same area, say Area 5). That would be a real possibility if we get to choose and that would really hurt us all in the regular draw...that's my take on it.
What I didn't see was if I want to buy a ticket for elk and a tickets for deer, can I specify that when I purchase them? Didn't seem really clear to me.

I use "science" not luck when I'm in it to win it. One of the best courses I took in college was statistics, where you learn the math behind the odds. I do buy certain raffle tags where the cost compared to the odds makes sense.
On the other hand, as some of you mentioned, if I see it more as a "donation" where it benefits wildlife, I'll throw my name in the hat even if it doesn't make sense. One of those for me is for the Montana sheep raffle tag.
