So, maybe I can get clarification here.

Question- When the license numbers are pulled for a controlled hunt, does a computer randomly select ONE number at a time, or does it pull ALL the license numbers for the particular hunt at one time?

If it pulls one number at a time, saying that a persons "odds" for a tag are 1/4 or whatever for a hunt that has 10 tags and 40 applicants is completely bogus. When there is 1 tag remaining and 39 applicants left in the pool, it is a far cry from 1/4.

A person only has a 1/4 chance for the first tag and then the odds get worse.

Does anyone know how the actual computer system works to pull license numbers for tags?

If they pull all the license number at one time, then the odds theoretically stay consistent.
