Utah big game drawing results

Every year while working on this article it seems hard to believe that the next year’s application season is about to start. Exciting times are ahead as we all start to plan out our 2020 hunting season!

2020 dates and deadlines

In the table below you will find the tentative 2020 state application deadlines and tentative draw result dates. These dates will be modified as each state releases more information. Currently, they are based on previous years’ deadlines/results by looking at what day of the week they are typically released or even the exact calendar date they tend to follow. And sometimes, unfortunately, there is no pattern, so I’m left to really analyze prior-year deadlines.

Note on draw result dates

Waiting on draw results can seem to take forever! And I’m just like everyone else that waits for results all year and then is constantly pressing the refresh button. Currently, the draw result dates are each based somewhat on when the 2019 and earlier year results were released. Keep in mind: each year we get questions on why our draw result dates don’t exactly match up with what you might find in the regulations. And stay with me here. but for the most part, our draw results dates listed are actually more accurate based on the trends of how some states release their draw odds early every year. Most states go on a typical trend in releasing draw results and a lot of times they release them well before their listed date in the regulations. For example, Nevada and New Mexico list their draw result date in their regulations, but they always release them earlier than that.

Also, tentative application deadlines are used until each state release their 2020 regulations.

Other items worth noting

You can also see all of the important western hunting deadlines on our INSIDER Basecamp page. That is sort of like your INSIDER “homepage.” You can find a quick link to Basecamp in the upper right-hand corner of the screen if you click on the INSIDER button. We keep that page updated with all the latest dates, deadlines and important INSIDER information.

If you’re new to goHUNT, we release state-by-state INSIDER Application Strategy Articles three to four weeks before each state deadline. We feel this is the perfect length of time for you to check out the new for 2020 regulations, unit boundary changes, herd dieoff information, and tag allocation changes before you try to draw your dream tag. Keep in mind, that you can always research for your upcoming season by utilizing our Filtering 2.0 tools well before we release each state’s application strategy article.

Another benefit to our online presence is you will have access to the latest and best information possible to help you prepare for hunts (we don’t have to rush to publish tentative application information to meet print deadlines). Also, once an application strategy article is released, INSIDERs will be able to click on the date of release in the table below to view the entire application strategy article.

Application season can be very overwhelming and we try to keep it simple with an easy to follow schedule of article release dates. Some of the Application Strategy articles are released within a small window, but that is done to ensure we are providing the best possible information to our users. Different states release their regulations and herd information at tight windows to the application deadline. So we strive to release these articles with all the information possible.

Best of luck in the 2020 draws! And as always, feel free to reach out to us at any time if you have questions.

The application season is almost here. We outline the 2020 big game hunting application deadlines, application strategy article release dates, and draw results for each state.
