We have mounds of data that tells us last years draw stats matter to hunters. They base their application decisions on that information. So the past results nearly always influence that years draws.One of the main principles of statistics is that past results have no effect on the outcome of a new draw. Each draw is an individual event with each point level have a certain probability to be drawn. The statistics are there and they do affect each individual draw for a tag but no matter how many times in a row a coin flip ended with heads up the next flip is still 50/50 chance.
