    Preference Point and Unit Help

    Can someone let me know how the points work with multiple people? I have 6 points and my two friends have 6 and 5. We have a combined average of 5.66. If the projections for an area is 0% with 5 points and 100% with 6, do we stand a chance? Could we draw with a special tag in units 22, 24, 111, 118??

    Any suggestions on a good unit with our point totals? We are looking for a guided archery hunt with the ability to come back with a rifle if needed.

    Suggestions would be very appreciated.

    5.66 is a whole lot better then 5.5 and a whole lot worse than 5.75.
    Now, take a few minutes to write down the combinations needed to get that 5.75 or any point value greater than yours but less then 6.0. How likely are those combinations to occur for that hunt?
    You also need to see if they posted odds for <6.

    If the OP hasn't checked things out in the draw odds like WB mentioned, I've done it for him. Last year there was 0 chance to draw any of those units he mentioned even in the Special high priced draw with less than 6 PPs (<6 PPs).

    If you're going to do the work for him why not just tell him to put in for unit 45?

    ***LOL! If I tell one more person to put in for unit 45, the odds of them drawing will be about 1 in 100!!!
