Just did the math, Assuming everyone who had applied will continue to do so. If you applied this year for the 1st time you are gauranteed a tag in 407 short years! No draw and especially sheep draw should rely on hunter mortality as your only chance of drawing. How many 85 year olds are going to wnat to hunt the tag they have waited a lifetime for and how many could!!!The journey is the reward.

With our current priority system you do know to a point. Lets assume the following priority structure exists for a given draw
Priority 3, 8 Applicants
Priority 2, 16 applicants
Priority 1, 26 applicants
Priority 0, 32 applicants
If there are 5 tags available then only Priority 3s will be entered into the draw. Everyone else simply gets a priority point.
If there were 10 tags available, the 8 priority 3s would be given tags and the 16 priority 2s would be entered in the draw for the remaining 2 tags. There is no chance for lower priorities to draw a tag.
This works well for most draws but sucks for the 437 sheep draw because of high demand and low #s of tags available, that is why any draws that have been implimented since the problem was identified with the 437 sheep draw are true random draws with no priority sytem in place. The 437 sheep draw remains pie in the sky for all but those who have faithfuly applied since its inception.The journey is the reward.
