I wouldn't doubt if it does little good either way.
    I think you are right.

    I am in favor of point banking. It will do a lot to reduce the point creep inthe higher demand units, especially if employed for the entire 5 year structure. All the doom and gloom by Jimss is not warranted. Of course everybody has their own specific self -interest, and every rule, and every rule change effects somebody negatively (and others positively). With 22 elk points I don't intend to use point banking. My son has 10 points, and may very well choose a "lesser" unit to retain some points. As I said, the effects are different for everybody. Without changes to the system, point creep will only worsen, and the entire system will likely be changed after it collapses under its own problems.

    Point banking will dramatically increase the points it will require to draw the lower and mid tier draw units and will have no impact on the top tier units. When you draw a tag you should lose all of your points. All of this hype is over 7 elk units.

    I keep hearing of the negative affect on lower and mid tier units but haven't heard any real data that supports it. It's bound to have a little affect but I wonder how much? I don't remember there being much of any affect last time??? If anybody has some real numbers to support the claim that would be nice. I personally think there's a lot of hype and even if it does go into affect hardly no one will take advantage of it therefore the affect will be minimal at best.

    Im also in favor of point banking and i think it must be given 5 years to see how it affects all draw units. It may affect some units but I believe that after 5 years, it could alliviate a lot of the point creep going on.

    I just don't think the top point holders are going to burn them. The guys I know with over 20 deer points are going to sit it out until 4th seasons come back in the Basin. The mid tier guys may burn them on decent units if they have a shot at drawing again in a few years instead of starting back from scratch. The 0-2pt units should be in more danger from ppl resetting to 0 bc that's all they can try to draw. (For deer)... Those same guys have similar points for elk and are looking at the 2/201 units like everyone else with no intention of going elsewhere. Too cheap to hunt bulls in other areas of the state just for fun hunts.

    The guys who will go for point banking would be guys like my son with 11 NR points for elk who are in no man's land as for as the top tags. He can't catch the top 5 units but could draw 2 or 3 good tags with his points. Those are the scenarios that will create point creep on lower point units.

    UH, you could go for 61, bank some points and hunt one of those units with him.

    Agree with UH on this one. Guys in the middle, if they are smart and can't get the top tags for two decades, will break their PPs apart and do 2 or 3 hunts with them. That is bound to up the lower unit requirements in PPs to some extent, but who knows what it will be until it happens.

    That's my thoughts too. Although I think it will take several years to effect the point creep in a positive way if at all.
