MN elk drawing ?

16 posts in this topic

Is there any type of preference point system in place for this drawing?

First year applying so I'm just wondering if my odds will improve over the years or if they'll always be the same.

Thanks!

I'd expect so most everything else has a point system. Have you dug deep into MNDNR HSOforum? The app might have noted it.

Good luck!

Yeah, I've been diggin', haven't found anything yet that states you get preference points like the doe or turkey lottos.

I'm thinking there is no preference, but I'm not sure.... that's why I'm askin!

Unfortunatly, no perference point system. That's something that needs to be changed if they plan on having an elk hunt on a yearly basis.

Preference as it stands for deer and bear wouldn't work for either moose or elk. Basically, there aren't enough licenses and if you missed 1 year, you would never get one because a person with 1 point more than you would keep you out of the drawing for the rest of your life. With deer and bear, you eventually get a permit because there are enough to satisfy demand (even though it might take a couple of years to draw.

For moose, 20% of the licenses are given to people who put in for 10 or more years. The same type of system might work for elk but it would take legislative action to make it happen.

I hope that answers the question.

the only preference that i know of in the elk drawning is 20% of the tags go to the landowners in the hunt zone. it's only the second year for the kittson county hunt, hard to set a preference only two years in, but the grygla hunt has been going for years, but i haven't heard of any preference for grygla.

When is the lottery held and the lucky ones notified?

Not that I *plan* on getting drawn, but getting drawn would sure impact fall plans and late applications in other states.

Just asking ...

I'm curious to that as well. Hopefully sooner then later.

Was the lottery held later this year because of the mangement plan being done or is it always this late in the summer?

It's always mid-July. It was extended a week this year because we were slow getting the information out. The application period ended on Friday and it takes a couple of weeks to clean up the data and do the drawing. Winners should know in the next couple of weeks.

Is there any word on these yet? When will the results be known?

Will they be posted online, or how does one know if they got drawn or not?

Drawing happened and winners were notified. We can't post winners because of data privacy laws. I asked the web people to post a statement like I just typed but I don't see it yet. I'll ask again ...

So, if you didn't get a letter I'm sad to report you didn't draw.

One of my favorite quotes comes from a radio personality who was commenting on the UMN football team. He said, "the Gophers are now in their 40th year of rebuilding". Priceless.

    • Last Friday, I saw a beetle at my home's carpet. It is very difficult for me to get rid with this beetle and I also saw some eggs were laying on the carpet, which was quite damaging. Then on a recommendation of my neighbor I had called up the Queens NY pest control services, who had used an insect spray and where the experts spray around the floorboards, furniture and on carpets and helped us by preventing the carpet beetles laying their eggs and removing all the food sources.  
    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.
