    Default Idaho results...any day now.

    I have sheep on my brain and money went on the Amex. Anyone else waiting for the results?

    I am waiting anxiously for goat results. Me and two buddies put in for the same unit hoping one of us might pull a tag so we can all go and hunt....hasn't worked the past couple years but maybe this year. Are you a resident?

    It's the latest greatest computerized system. But it takes as long as when they drew numbers out of a hat. If I were in charge I would assure randomness by using this method.

    They will also be available in October. They are not being untruthful.

    I was really counting on the results being released by 4 pm MT on May 18

    Turkey was late by what at least a week or so. I wouldn't expect the other results to be early either.

    As long as I get a goat tag, I will wait another week..

    It is funny states make people wait so long...these are computer-based draw system...it should take like two days after payment goes through. I think three fifth graders with a calculator, a roll of carnival tickets, and a cardboard box to pull from could do most states.....and Idaho doesn't even have a point system so take out the calculator for that one.

    Didn't the legislature pass a law requiring the department to outsource the draw to an outside contractor (at a much greater cost) a couple of years ago?

    I'm totally not that informed on the Idaho process so take this for what it's worth but I know that some states have the application period prior to quotas even being set. In Nevada, for instance, the app deadline is on or around tax day and the quotas aren't even set till the first week in May. Once the quotas are set they give a couple weeks for the contractor to get everything set and then run the draw. By law the results are available within 48 hours of the draw taking place. Nevada is also running a new system this year and the delay between app deadline and draw allowed them to contact a number of people who screwed up their apps in the new system. Maybe Idaho has a similar process?

    Idaho sets big game quotas every two years and before app period. Seasons and quotas stay the same during those periods...I am just impatient. But, yes, some states do not have quotas set when you send money.

    Thanks for the info! And donít worry, Iím just as impatient. Waiting for my unsuccessful idaho goat result has become a yearly right of passage.

    Good Lord, are they really going to take until 6/10 to release results? Perhaps it's happened before, but I don't recall ever not getting MGS results before the deer, elk, antelope application due date.

    if they stick to their regs and every one will be notified by mail by June 10th they are cutting it real close. mail will take 3-5 days to be delivered to most people by Saturday. I'm not holding my breath though. This contractor sucks!

    I just tried:
    "The Idaho Fish and Game site is currently unavailable due to unscheduled maintenance We are working to quickly restore the system to full operation."
