I’m really trying to figure out if it’s worth continuing to apply to sheep anymore. I apply to four states most years and $2k is a big hit. Anyway, I have 5 weighted points out of 13 max weighted. I checked last year’s draw summaries and there are a total of 1,214 NRs with more than 5 weighted points. That’s a lot considering that NRs only get 10% of the tags, which was just 24 last year. In going through the units, my best opportunity to ever draw a tag would be to apply for an archery tag and last year there were 6 available to NRs. Two of those units had 40 or more NRs with more than 5 weighted points apply for just one tag. So they wouldn’t be an option. I would have to look at less desirable units. There are a few archery units that look like viable options. Unit 35 only had 3 NRs with more than 5pts. 44 with 6>5pts. 12 with 8>5pts and 49 with 11>5pts. Obviously those will vary from year to year. Odds for success are about in line for most big game during an archery season. 9 was 22% last year. 35 was 40%. 44 was 25% and 49 was 33%. I don't really understand how CO awards a tag in the weight PP draw. It's sound very convoluted as randomly assigned numbers are reversed then divided or something. So do weighted points even really play a roll or is it just a lottery and really not worth continuing to apply given the large pool of NRs in the draw?
