Whitetail vs Mule deerI’m a bit confused here on the OTC vs draw B tags. Below is excerpt from the 2021 regs for unit 314. If I’m reading this correctly, there’s a deer B draw (hunt 314-01) that closed for apps on June 1. It’s capped at 100 tags. I successfully drew that hunt, my son was unsuccessful. However, there’s an OTC tag that provides a Deer B tag for all of Region 3 that goes on sale Aug 9 and is unlimited quantity. The draw tag is $5 more than the OTC tag. So what’s confusing to me is why would anyone do the draw tag for a specific unit when they can just buy an OTC tag that covers the entire region? Is it simply to let you get 2 B tags since you can only have one OTC?
Yeah, I realize that I did the “why would anyone do that” thing. But I wasn’t aware of the OTC option.
