This thread exists because the OP wants some semblance of a time line. Obviously someone cares....that’s why he started the thread. I gave him information, and a means by which to evaluate the time period he should be prepared for. You have never made a statement that useful about NV draw odds.
How is that possible? We regularly keep being told by a few people on this forum how hunting is dying because of hunter numbers going down every year.Those who’ve drawn “x” amount of tags in the last 10-20 years for species “y” don’t relate to the guys jumping in the draw today. Take a look for yourself and any random unit for every species and you’ll find 2-3 times as many applicants in 2020 compared to 2017. All of our odds are diminishing every year because demand has sky rocketed and supply for the most part is in decline (mule deer) and slightly increasing (elk NV, but not nearly enough for supply).

I couldn't agree more, an area I have hunted for years here in the East is also being over run the last few years because of a handful of YouTube channels in circulation. In the last two years I've met guys from at least four different States in the area after deer. It was an area that before the Tube I never once saw a non resident in.It’s been explained a lot and pretty easy to see the numbers are declining in the east (due to loss of private access) but sky rocketing in the west do to all this social media shit. I feel it’s like a cancer that won’t stop growing. As if there aren’t already 50 how to apply in “x” state videos let’s make 10 more. Let’s make more come to this region and hunt OTC archery, whoops that’s being turned to limited now sorry everyone. I get it, we need voices. But we need to grow the resource first and not just hope we will still be able to get a tag or two a year in the future.
