Hey Jim W. or anybody,

Unread postby john1984 » Sat Dec 06, 2014 10:24 am

If a person applies for MN bear zone 99 in 2015 for a preference point, then in March 2016 the person applies for zone 31, does he have at least a 95% chance at getting the tag for sept 2016??? Cuz what if you book early on a guide and have to pay 50% down to reserve your place, then you don't get drawn on 2 preference points for zone 31, should the guide save your "non-refundable" 50% down payment for Sept 2017????

I can't answer for Jim, but its possible that it could take 3 years to draw. It took me 2 years last time.

It's taking three years of applying to get a tag. So the third spring you apply you would be drawn. I had 1 hunter draw on 2 points.

So if you apply in 2015 you most likely will not draw till 2017. 2017 would be your 3rd point.

Don't send any money to any guide till you draw a tag. That a good way to part with money you'll never see again.

Sorry for late response I've been busy trapping and took a new job and a four month old baby takes what little free time I have.

I'm getting 2-3 emails a week and couple phone calls on hunts already.
