I tried a few times yesterday afternoon, and already this morning. It’s a no go. If people were “applying” for a vaccine ... I bet the government would right on top of that !! Totally ridiculous.

I am sure the CB moose draw is high priority right now for the governmentwacko.png and their voters

Would not be shocked if they cancelled it like most other events

 

Many of us are so tired and pissed on how it is run we won't even try any more, especially knowing there is way fairer systems out there being used in other provinces. 

 

Yep luck of the draw my ass

 

That being said good luck to those still donating their money and I hope you get a tag but 34 plus years trying is enough for me

 

I know 100% if there was  just three of us in the draw and one tag  me, nomad and another the other dude would get drawn

Heard the hunt is only going to be for those that live in the Cape this year.  Can't leave your community so no main landers, so should be right up the alley for all the meat cove guys.

I was able to apply today. $18.50 wasted, I’m sure. Not like I’ve never wasted money before, especially giving it to the government.

Not really I win on atlantic loto the odd time in fact 500 bucks last week on keno

Never even close on the moose draw and could have bought a tag for 2500 bucks some years ago. Told I don't know the right people from a guy on his third

Fair?? when some on  their 3rd or 4th tag and others putting in from the start have not got one

This can be fixed real easy if they wanted to with a draw like NB but they could not careless

 Don't get me going I could write a book on this right from the dead guy getting his moose here or the old guy in the home that could not walk and bed ridden for years

Cheers

Just stating the facts that it's a lottery guys.  I know there's a lot better system that could have been utilized, pools could be started (should have been started) points for every year you don't get picked...there's lots of good/better ideas. The list goes on and on and on (berkley commercial...lmao)

 

...someone had to put that dead guys name in Joe...pretty sure he didn't do it  tongue.pngtongue.png  same as the guy who couldn't walk..he do it as a joke ? or did someone else do it for him? Some folks have NO scruples...I've met and talked to people who put in for the draw in hopes of getting picked and never use their spot...just to save a moose rolleyes.gifrolleyes.gif

No he put in and died before the hunt and rather than turning in the tag which is what is required he killed his moose from the grave. Other guy was in a home and bed ridden for years but he had a wildlife number which someone in the family entered and he got a big bull and never left his room 

More of that happening than we think on the save

 Simple question how do you know your name is even entered and others are not in more than once

 Three years ago I entered three times for different zones and times and it took every one just to see what I was being told was true . I asked WTF is going on and was told only one went in. I said BS then give me my money back NOPE never see the cash again

 Cheers

We are lucky to be able to have this opportunity, in this Province. Its a great experience to participate in this hunt. Fantastic time of year in one of the most beautiful places in Canada.  Best of luck to all who apply.

Talk about stirring the pot biggrin.png biggrin.png

 Can you imagine the howling then. Priceless

Have to say I do miss attending the live draws. Man they were entertaining many years when the fights would break outlaugh.png

Not if you have a helicopter to hunt with and cannot count rolleyes.gif

 My bud that cuts them for years was down over 25% last year from 5 years ago , yes maybe someone else did them but not that many in his opinion .Been down for a while but they still had to cull them

 Cheers

 

 To me this tells the real story

 

Effort (hours hunted /moose) over past 5 years
2016       91 hours/moose
2017     124 hours/moose
2018     147 hours/moose
2019       96 hours/moose
2020     155 hours/moose
