Draw Odds Now Updated For 2018

goHUNT INSIDER Draw Odds Updated For 2018


Each year we release a bunch of enhancements to our Draw Odds platform, and this year is no different. The result of these updates further showcases us as having the most accurate draw odds in the industry.


Instead of just updating all the data for 2018, we wanted to bring you more information than ever before. This year we included several major enhancements:

1. Faster 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 2018, Draw Odds load times are much quicker.

2. More Data - Updated Draw Odds Across Every State

Draw Odds landing page updated for 2018
We have draw odds for nine western states. 

Every state and unit has been updated to show the latest draw odds. You'll now be able to see exactly how the 2017 draw played out to help you decide how to apply in 2018.

goHUNT year over year draw odds data
Year-over-year draw odds view showing an applicant who is at the 7 point level. See trends in draw odds, point creep, applications and tags drawn.

Along with the updated odds, you’ll now be able to track trends even further with another level of our year-over-year data on our draw odds detail page. You’ll now 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.

Small features added

Montana adjustment

Montana draw odds options

We have now broken apart Draw Odds in Montana and provide the odds for the Deer Combo, Elk Combo, and Big Game Combo. If you're looking for Deer Combo or Elk Combo, simply select Nonresident and then you can select the species you're interested in. If you want to see the draw odds for Montana's Nonresident Big Game Combo license (deer and elk tag option), simply select Nonresident Big Game Combo when you're on the standalone Draw Odds page or on Filtering 2.0.

Black bear draw odds

We also have 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 each state.

Additional questions related to Draw Odds

We’ve also added sections for a Draw Odds FAQ page in several different locations. This is a great place for finding answers to common questions you may have about Draw Odds. You’ll find this on the Draw Odds homepage and also, the Draw Odds FAQs can be found on each Draw Odds detail pages.


Female species

Draw odds for all female species (deer, elk, antelope, sheep, moose, mountain goat) are currently in the testing phases and will be available later this month.

Stay tuned for updates on more enhancements we are rolling out with in 2018… we aren’t stopping here! Best of luck in the 2018 draws. Feel free to reach out to us at any time if you have questions.

@ Kenny J.

Thanks for the comment and you are correct, you can apply for either the Type 1 (Any Bison) or the Type 4 (Any Cow/Calf Bison). We have typically only covered the male or either sex hunts, but this year we are adding female hunts to Draw Odds for all species. We are still working through these and they 'll be up a little later this month. Thanks again!

@ Jeremy G.

We do have Utah bear odds in the works. We are trying to get them out before the application deadline in February. Thanks for the comment!

Thanks Loren, we are excited as well. Lots of great opportunities out there with female species. Thanks for all of the support.

Glad to see you're adding female species, it'll be a great tool. I spoke with one of your folks about it last spring and he said you were considering adding it. My wife and I were able to draw several doe/cow tags second choice with his help. Keep up the great work!

@ James B.

Thanks for the comment. As you're probably aware Unit 1, 2B and 2C Early Rifle and Early Muzzleloader flip-flop every other year. The odds for the Early Rifle won't show because that season isn't offered in 2018 and we've updated to the 2018 dates for elk and antelope. The odds for the Early Muzzleloader are showing on the unit profiles (i'll attach a link) but we hit a small hiccup and they are not displaying on the Draw Odds stand alone. That will be fixed tomorrow, I apologize for that. Thanks again!

Here's the link to Unit 1:

@ Jeff A.

Great question! We are in the middle up updating the season dates as they get released by the various states. In AZ we have the 2018 Elk and Antelope dates, those are approved in early December. New Mexico just released their 2018 dates this week so we'll be getting those updated as quickly as we can. The other states will follow as the regulations are released. Thanks

For Az it shows 2018... for NM it shows 2017 Amy reason ?

Hey Colton,

CA is definitely in the works and should be live in plenty of time before the 2018 app deadline. Let us know if you have any other questions or comments. Thanks
