Why would I apply with a group if it is tougher to draw a group Special Permit?
There are some very good reasons for you to apply with a group. Listed below are just a few of the reasons why you would apply with a group regardless if it is tougher to draw:
You have family and/or friends that you like to hunt with every year. A group application ensures that everyone gets to hunt together if drawn for that Special Permit.
You have points built up in a Special Permit category, but your family and/or friends only have a few points or are applying for the first time. By applying as a group together, your group points in that category are averaged, giving them a better chance of not only drawing a Special Permit, but also being able to hunt with you as well.
Many mountain goat permit applicants apply as a group because of safety concerns while hunting in alpine country.
