A computer can't test if something is statistically valid, it can only give you a confidence level (assuming it was programmed correctly), which needs to be interpreted by a human with a background in statistics. The mere fact that it has to be tested is alarming to me.

"It’s just software for a controlled hunt drawing, not software to keep planes landing safely at PDX" No, it is software to determine if people get a hunt of their lifetime. It needs to be mathematically fair and correct and have exactly zero bias. This is very important to hunters, and the deflection it is not, is not heart warming.
