How much of the money in the previous years went to helping wildlife vs 2018? I guess we'll have to wait for the numbers to be published, unless you've got an inside source with your CBA connection.When you don't draw, guess you ended up with zero chance.
Look where this is headed. Look at what happened in Wyoming. Points went from 7 bucks to where they are now. Go apply for 8 big game species at $10 each, then pay for your points that in a few short years are maxed out at $100 bucks each....hundreds of thousands of people are going be thousands of dollars into it with no tag to show for it. Or, you can put up the money, and get it back when you don't draw and maybe get a tag.
Look at where this is headed. If you think a $10 app fee is going to stop it your crazy. 170,000 new points this year, what next 280,000? What about year 3? App fees aren't helping wildlife - they are paying a vendor.
One of the most prestigious awards the CBA gives out is for the big 8. 8 big game species taken with a bow, what an accomplishment. 107 recipients in 50 years. Many believe there will never be another one given out, given what we have been handed.
You know what chance I had of getting the big 8 before these types of draws? I can tell you the percentage is very,very,very small. And while it may still be a small percentage, it's larger than it was before.
