The Swan System

I curious to see how people applied and the percentages of those drawn. I put in just for one by myself and got drawn. How did everyone do with the # of people in the party or by their selves with getting drawn?

I have always put in as a party. Been drawn every year until this year. Had 3 in my party. No luck.

What gets me is the out of state people that get drawn. How do they get a permit but a NC resident doesn't. :crying:


Ok, I feel better now. Lol

Put in with a party the past 5 years, got drawn four times including last year. Put in by myself this year, got drawn as did a buddy of mine who was in my party that got drawn last year. I guess since I got a permit again this year, that everyone that didn't get drawn last year should have gotten drawn this year with the point system.

I guess I'm pretty lucky. I have got one every year applied. Do OOS's only get 10 % of the draws?

Have been lucky with the draw system in times past . Usually I put in as a party with my son and his buddy The one year I didn't I got drawn he didn't go figure. Not a good situtation at the house. Never again ALWAYS a party draw from that day forward. Heck who remembers when you could buy the left over metal bands across the counter at the little store in Hyde ????
