INSIDER Rebuild Now Live For 2019!
We are excited to announce that our 2019 INSIDER Rebuild and Draw Odds updates are now live!
If you missed our last update, the past six months have been spent completely rebuilding everything on INSIDER. The INSIDER research platform just hit our four year anniversary, so it was time for a completely new set of code to increase performance and allow more research functionality; these new enhancements are huge for all users! You will see a new interface, faster load times, additional filtering functionality and new enhancements on Draw Odds. You'll now see all the updated information on the standalone Draw Odds page, Filtering 2.0 and Unit Profiles.
2019 DRAW ODDS & INSIDER REBUILD ARE LIVE!
Each year we find more and more ways to add enhancements to our Draw Odds platform, and this year we completely redesigned the INSIDER product from the ground up.
Instead of just updating all the data for the 2019 season, we wanted to bring you more information than ever before. Note: We still need to update 2019 season dates for multiple states. This is accomplished after each state publishes their new regulation book. Once again, this year we included several major enhancements:
1. Extremely Faster Load Times
Load times are now faster than ever! So now, you'll be able to get your research data faster allowing you to bounce between pages without slow load times! The more data points you add to a system, typically the slower the system performs. Not anymore! We made it a goal to squash slow load times, and we are happy to say that for 2019, Draw Odds, Filtering 2.0 and Unit Profiles load times are much, much faster.
2. Data Overload - Updated Draw Odds Throughout Every State
The most accurate draw odds — just got better in 2019! Every state and unit has been updated to show the latest draw odds. You'll now be able to see exactly how the 2018 draw played out to help you decide how to apply in 2019. The result of these updates further showcases us as having the most accurate draw odds in the industry.
Along with the updated odds on the standalone draw odds experience page, each unit also has it's own detailed draw odds page where you can track trends even further with our year-over-year draw odds data. You’ll see exactly how the draws have played out for each state through the years (tracking point creep) and you’ll be able to track the trends at your point level.
Other new 2019 enhancements
Throughout the INSIDER Rebuild, we were hard at work on new enhancements to further benefit your research plan.
Applications by point level in Wyoming
If you missed our last INSIDER update, we now break out the Applications By Point Level BELOW the draw cut-off line in Wyoming and you can see those trends for the past four years. For the first time, you can see exactly how many applicants you might be competing with for licenses going into the 2019 draw. Previously you only had a total of how many didn’t draw and had no idea how many of those might have been at your same point level. Now you do, and it’s one more critical piece of the puzzle that can help put a tag in your pocket!
Utah black bear draw odds!
We are excited to announce that we now have Utah black bear draw odds for both residents and nonresidents! Last year we added black bear draw odds for Colorado, Idaho, Nevada, New Mexico, and Oregon. You’ll be able to see draw odds for black bear under Filtering 2.0 and the standalone Draw Odds page for six western states.
Youth draw odds!
Showcasing more hunting opportunities throughout the West is what we are all about! And based on INSIDER feedback, we have now added youth draw odds for several states. Currently, we have youth draw odds for Utah and Colorado. You can find youth draw odds on our standalone Draw Odds Page, or on Filtering 2.0. See more information below:
- Utah youth draw odds for:
- General deer
- Antlerless deer
- Antlerless elk
- Doe antelope
- Colorado youth draw odds
- You'll be able to see how youth applied on every species.
Here is the big thing in Colorado, the species below actually have a statistical advantage for a youth draw odds:
- Doe antelope
- Antlerless and either sex deer
- Antlerless elk
Stay tuned for more enhancements we are coming out with in 2019! In the following weeks, we will be releasing more youth odds, and season dates when we receive them from the states. Feel free to reach out to us at any time if you have questions. Best of luck in the 2019 draws.
