How does the WI draw work? First to enter gets first pic? And do you have preference points or anything like that?

Here in MN, we dont get 2nd, 3rd, etc choices..if you dont get drawn for the one you applied for, better luck next year..either that or you can buy surplus tags if there are any available in certain areas..

It's been like a week and I'm still really upset about this. What would the reasoning be that I applied for my permit like everyone else and of the 5 picks I made they gave me my very last choice? Does anyone know what their process is in determining who gets which permits? Next spring will I have preference for an early season?

Backwoods, I don't know the exact process, but if your always getting your last choice, you could apply and ask for only your first choice. No other choices. If you get drawn, you get your first choice, if not buy one over the counter. Then at least next year, you will get your first choice, because you applied and did not recieve a permit this gives you priority in the drawing. The only way other way would be to see if you can get landowner preference. If memory serves me correct your grandpa owns land, you need at least 50 acres,he can transfer his preference to you, they only drawback is the landowner has to give permission to anybody that ask to hunt turkeys on his land. Not the best, but at least you would get your 1st choice every other year. This was the first year I felt I didn't get hosed in the drawing, I got my second choice. Only problem was I never changed the zone to the one I wanted. So, I got a permit in a zone 1 don't have any place to hunt, zone 1. :evil:

What season did you get? I got lotsa land in zone 1 to hunt, you're more than welcome to come down and hunt with me.

Chris, I got period 3, April 27th-May 1st. My son has that period also, I will probably hunt with him. However, If he would get one during the youth, hunt, I may take you up on your offer if the season works out for you, and the offer still stands come spring. Thanks.
