Wow!! I better apply for another tag in few years instead of just taking the point. I’m betting chances are best on years when hunting with dog’s goes first.

Yes, I was able to get mine on 6 points in that Zone, and it was probably because it was a dog's go first year. I told myself I wouldn't go after the dogs again though :think: :think:

For 2017, when dogs went first, 22% of people with 4 points drew in Zone D.

Just read that they claim the bear population is down in Zone B and Zone D. Last year Zone D had 2,600 tags and this year 2,315. Success rate in Zone D was 48% last year and 63% in Zone B.
