Refuge reservations

Question: How are waterfowl reservations picked and how are they kept random? There seems to be something wrong with the system because it doesn’t seem to be randomly selecting people. Several of my neighbors and I have put in for the season draw for multiple refuges for the last few years without much success. One person has not been drawn in the past two years. Some people may get drawn only once while other people are getting drawn quite a bit. Can you please shed some light on this for us?

“The best day to go fishing is any day that ends in a Y.”
George Carr

 

Back in 1989 I fulfilled a long-time dream by moving to Alaska. I spent eight years in a true fishing and hunting paradise. The fishing was beyond compare, from May through September.

It was in the wintertime that I realized how much I missed Plumas County. Never mind the remoteness, very short daylight hours and really nasty winter weather in Alaska. It was the fishing I missed!
