Thank you for taking the time to explain it to me. I guess I'm beneith everyone else, so they feel obligated to skip over my question.

Anyway, so basically it sounds like some conservation BS and that it sucks for almost all the hunters in that area...Am I on the right track?

Needed to tune up my comprehension knob, buying the license is not the same as having points attached.

I got checking boxes, and couldn't stop.

No, it has nothing to do with conservation, it simply gives guys who put in year after year a better chance of drawing.

I would say it is for conservation in some ways. An alternative would be to offer tags over the counter, like most whitetail states. But they do a draw to limit the tags.

Of course, not all draw states have points, like NM. But the draw aspect, I would say, is for conservation.

It's about the Benjamin's. A way to leverage maximum dollars from fewer and fewer tags.

Selling chances instead of tags, frees "wildlife" departments to ignore solutions to falling tag numbers, a coyote is worth the same as an antelope circle of life BS. It allows them to consider those against hunting equally with those paying the bills.
