    I believe that is the number of applications, not applicants. Meaning people applied for more than 1 tag. There were about 95,000 applications in 2019, so business is still booming.

    Decided to not apply. After the state wouldn’t sell a license to turkey hunt in 2020 but still was asking for their elk donation I said forget it! Drawing Iowa bow tag this year anyway, couldn’t do both.

    Will probably apply again one day but doubt it’ll ever happen.

    I watched the drawing live 2 years ago and they said 6 people that have put in every year had not been drawn. I posted about it on here and more than 6 had put in every year and not been drawn. They flat out lied on tv before the drawing. I even brought that up to thee department and they denied it until they watched it again.

    I put in every year. I think I have missed 1 maybe 2 draws. Never drawn for crap and always put it for all choices. This year if me or my family members dont get drawn and we wont im going out west. Im 36. I dont have time to wait another 105 years to get drawn. 1 in 90 plus thousands is great odds but still. :) So for the ones who have got drawn and drawn more then once I encourage you to buy a lotto ticket. Dont wast your time on a power ball a quick doller scratch off should make you a billionaire first try.

    Biggest crock ever since its inception. Funny to me some have put in since the beginning and never been drawn and others have multiple times. Either way, the money made verses the money spent has an ROI that would make an investment banker fighting mad. Don't hate the player, hate the game I suppose. Just hate seeing wild game whored out like every other thing a corrupt govt' entity runs.....

    Well, another year gone by and no tag. 17 years in a row that I know of and that is tracked on the KDFWR website. Pretty sure that I have applied every year since the beginning but my profile only shows since 2004. It is amazing to me that I have applied and been draw in multiple other states out west but I cannot get drawn in my home state.

    No tag again this year. Oh well, I guess I will donate again next year.

    Gonna go out on a limb and say your Name isn’t in reference to your draw success.

    No, my name is due to being saved and blessed by a forgiving GOD to allow me to have the opportunity to even apply for the drawing.
