How do you get in to a hunt? I signed up just as the instructions listed. Also was decently early in doing so? I thought first timers had a better chance at attending? Any info would be great. Would love to atrend a d.i.v. Would like info so maybe I could get into a spring hunt. Thanks
Told ya! Know get your payment sent in and line up a carpool ride! (n/t)

I must say the first time I correctly signed up was last summer. I did everything right, double checked my name, nailed it early on the signups. That first time I didn't even make the alternate list. I stayed with it and signed up on DIV 40 and I made the list. I remember my hand slightly shaking as I slowly scrolled the list looking for my name. When I saw I made the list, it was worth the effort. Keep at it and don't take it personally or feel slighted. John and Rose are dealing with logistics that require tough decisions when narrowing down the list. Look toward possibly making the hunt from the alternate list, or signing up for next hunt. Your efforts will pay off in the end with persistency and patience.

You're 67 on the alternate list. As many will tell you you've got a really good chance at making it to the list. Keep watching as alternates move up as you have a very short window to confirm once moved to the list. Pay real close to any announcements about alternates that are ready to confirm and note watch for the first deadline for those already on the list to confirm. If they don't confirm in time things came move real quick. Good luck and be sure to update your profile

You need your whole name on your profile you only have your first name there. And it isn't first come first served it's by invitation.

First , to even be considered, you need to have your full real name in your profile ..

it's not based on your sign up spot... it is invitational. I have never been picked, but that won't deter me because the one thing I know is that if you don't sign up, you most definitely won't be picked. keep trying and when it does happen, you will appreciate it more.... I know I will.
