If you have overlap in the same game land on the same day though...
Take Goose Creek for instance, you chose PP1, CC1, PP2, CC2, and Hobucken as your choices all for Opening Day...being selected for 1 choice removes you from the others. (can't be 2 places at once)
But, there is nothing saying you cant be selected for Goose Creek for the opener, and Futch for the opener. Then you chose where you want to go
I'm pretty sure you don't get to choose if you are drawn for both. They assign you one of those draws, from what I've been told. Think of the mess WRC would have if all those people with overlapping draws had to be contacted and asked what draw they wanted. They don't have the time/staff to do it and it basically would make them have to start all over again due to the voids or overcrowding of those overlapping draws.
The permit holder chooses by showing up at the hunt they want...and be a no-show at the hunt they don't. The WRC does not get involved. I personally have had Futch and Goose Creek draws on the same day and have close buddies with Goose Creek and Mattamuskeet draws on overlapping days.
this was in the last 2-3 yrs...so perhaps something has changed.
