The Beaver State Podcast Episode 99: Why does the controlled hunt draw take so long?

June 10, 2022

The Controlled Hunt Draw has many moving parts. While a lot of it is accomplished through Boolean logic that applies to the business rules around things like preference points and non-resident tags, much of it is data entry and other human-oriented tasks that take many hours of application and error checking. And all of this begins after the change deadline on June 1. From June 1 to June 20th, it's a race against the clock to get a clean, error-free draw to publish by the deadline. ODFW's Angela Ward walks us through the process in this week's Beaver State Podcast.
