I understand the last day to modify credit card information for this year's draw is July 11, so rumor is credit cards may start being hit on July 12. Keep your eyes peeled, and let us know when something happens.

I am eagerly awaiting results. Expecting a deer tag after 16 years waiting. I have been holding off buying my Wyoming topo maps so I can get all these on one order.

I should be drawing my sheep tag this year. I think I have about a 0.000000001% chance. Pretty much a guarantee!

I have about 15 years until I draw my deer and elk tags considering point creep. Ha. Oh well, nothing like some good ol anticipation.

How many points you got to get those odds? I flew out to get my hunter's ed point added to my 14 makes 15, so my odds went way up to 0.00000001%.

Ive heard this "point creep" quite a few times. Is that when you build up ponts for years and then put in messing up everyone odds?

"Point Creep" means the points it take to draw a tag keeps "creeping" up (going up) each year, so it takes years and years to draw that tag.

For example I've been chasing an elk tag in Colorado. When I started it took 7 points to draw. I now have 22 points and am a couple points behind the tag I want. If I hold out it will likely take about 30 points to draw.

Here's the official info. The deadline to update your credit card information with AZGFD is tomorrow (July 10). That means that on July 11, they could begin charging cards for deer and sheep.

Just 3, so I think I forgot to carry a zero.... My odds are actually: 0.000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 000001%

Hey gotta mention I think that AZ hunter's ed point thing is pretty lame, but I would encourage anyone applying in AZ to use it for an excuse to fly out there for a winter break! I had a blast on my 8 day trip two years ago. Met step-son (CA) out there and did the one day class in Yuma, then drove up to Flagstaff and up to units 9 & 10 shed hunting. Camped there. Trout fishing on the Colorado at Page. Then down to Phoenix for a spring training baseball game. Awesome weather!

May never get to sheep hunt, but had a great time visiting. And the point is permanent and for all species. Nice deal.

Keep your head up Fink. My son drew an Arizona desert sheep tag with only 4 points ;)

With only 12 pts for deer, I figure by the time I draw I'll have a 4 wheel drive wheelchair. Camo of course.

No cc hits for me yet. Maybe I'll get lucky in the raffle drawing on Saturday?

Very cool Zim. Love to hear how it goes. I might jump ship on the Strip!

It was hard to turn my back on a Strip archery tag, but I can't afford an outfitter so was told this hunt was the best option with one point below max.

Well turns out my card got hit yesterday for a AZ deer tag. I never got the text from my credit card company. It's my wife's tag since I bought a point this year. Not sure if its for Mule deer or late rifle Coues.

Are the results supposed to come out today or next week? I haven't been following the AZ drawing as I'm trying to research a rocky mtn elk tag I drew here in CA. Glad I didn't put in for deer in AZ though, but I did put in for DBHS with 15 pts. DBHS are always a long shot, but someone has to draw...

Congrats on that ! which late whitetail unit ? You don't have to say. I've been so tempted to put in for 23 late but don't want to blow 12 pts on it. Getting tired of waiting and investing... I've hunted late archery in 23 a few times lately. seen some nice bucks. Only 85 tagson late rifle hunt so not so crowed if you can draw !
