Does anyone know the date/time of the seed number draw? I would like to attend this year.

It will be interesting to see what you think of the process; I'm betting part of it will be "Really? it's 2019!" :D

Neat stuff. When will the results be out....Oregon is last again for no good reason.
With a June 1 change deadline, it certainly can't be earlier than that

If you would like the agency and its contractor to work 24/7 so that you can get your draw results earlier, find the ear of a legislator who agrees with you directing the commission to make those changes :idea:

Please make sure its General Fund dollars that will be paying the contractor a ridiculous amount of overtime so you can know one week earlier; I'm sure that will go over well in this state ;)

All of this is new to me.

And now (Thanks to you:flowered:), all I can envision is Bingo night at the elks lodge with someone reaching into the basket and pulling out sheep tag winners!

That is not very far from the reality. :wink:

Except instead of pulling out winners, one is pulling out ping pong balls with a digit on them :flowered:


And since there are 90 digits on the picture that Stonefly1 has provided, it gets to be done 90 times :)


I do know that I am in the youngest 25% of the demographic in attendance :D

That's either awesome or sad.

Mostly depends on if I draw or not.:lurk:

Has anyone been able to get their seed numbers yet from odfw in preparation for the ping pong drawing?
I always wait until after to ask. Then I spend the 3 weeks either feeling somewhat good about my position or building myself up for the fact I’m not going to get the tag.

Where can you find your random numbers? I don't see any linked to any of my apps in my ODFW profile page.

I don't think you can, without a data request.

Do these seed numbers, in any way, indicate if you will draw or not?

read post #7.

Not an exact science, or science at all, but in past years I've been able to tell on one of my apps and a cpl for friends. It's pretty obvious when you're at the btm of the pile or sitting right above the seed number for a species.

The process itself: Here is a step-by-step process of how the random computerized controlled hunt draw works:

  • Each application purchased is assigned a random 10-digit number.
  • Members of the public are invited to ODFW headquarters to randomly choose a 10-digit draw seed number for each hunt series. (Call 503-947-6108 to participate in the drawing.)
  • Applicants for each hunt are grouped by preference points and first choice hunt selected.
  • Tags are awarded in each preference point group beginning with the applicant whose 10-digit number matches, or is closest to and above, the seed number. The selection continues with the applicant having the next higher 10-digit number, until 75% of the tags have been awarded or until all first-choice applicants have received tags.
  • All remaining first-choice applicants are rearranged solely by 10-digit random number and the remaining 25% of tags are awarded randomly among all first-choice applicants for the hunt.
  • If there are tags left, the process restarts for second choice hunt applicants. (Preference points are not a factor for awarding 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th choices.)
