Pa elk draw questitons

So in just a few months we will be able to apply for the elk draw. Couple of questions if anybody knows the answer.

- Recently heard that hunters will be able to apply for separate draws for the rifle and archery season. $10 to apply to each. Preference points accrued in the past will continue with the rifle draw. If you apply for the archery draw you start at 0 points. Truth?

- Does anybody know if this hunt will take place this coming fall or will the pieces not be in place till 2020's hunt? There was discussion that the licensing and draw system might not be ready for 2019.

Thanks.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

So I am gathering that if you apply for the rifle hunt, your accumulated points only apply to that specific draw. If you apply for the archery hunt as well, you start at 0 points since that is a new draw.

Accumulated points should apply in any drawing entered.

Maybe they should but that is not my understanding of how this will roll out. Anybody that applies for the archery draw starts at 0 points. Accumulated points still apply to the rifle draw. And you can apply to both.

3 draws, archery - regular season - late season.
$10 to apply per draw. You can apply for all 3 draws.
Preference points accumulated are only valid for the regular season draw, same season as we have been applying for. Other seasons will have separate points systems starting so everyone is starting at zero this year.

If someone enters all 3 & is drawn say in the reg season draw(assuming this would be the first draw)...I guess your entry in the archery & late drawings would be removed?

LOL. So basically they are going to subtract tags off the regular season draw(making it harder to draw), to provide tags for the new seasons.
