About Toprut: 

Toprut is an online tool to help you research, plan, and apply for hunts and tags each year. The information provided includes hunt quotas, applicant totals, harvest information, and drawing odds. In addition, Toprut provides unit profile information including public land boundaries, land ownership percentages, and terrain statistics to help you quickly evaluate your hunt options in a single, easy-to-use interface to streamline research before you go hunt.

When it comes to hunt draw odds, the Toprut standard is to go the extra mile to obtain the detailed data needed from the state wildlife agencies in order to get the most meaningful results. Frequently this information is not available for download by the general public and is only available for a fee. That is at the core of what Toprut does: gather, analyze, and publish the state draw data in order to produce the most accurate draw odds available anywhere.

Each state’s drawing process is unique. From point systems to multiple hunt choices to capped tag quotas for a species, the math to figure out true drawing odds quickly advances beyond what is capable on a calculator or spreadsheet. This is where Toprut’s draw simulations come to the rescue. They’ve figured out the hard parts, so that you don’t have to.

In some states the cost to simply apply for limited quota tags can exceed $100. It can sometimes take years to accumulate the points needed in order to successfully draw the hunts you’re targeting. Whatever your tag strategy or hunt plan may be, it’s important to understand and evaluate your options using the best information available. Do that, and you can go into each new application season with realistic expectations and a solid plan. Only then you can focus on what matters the most: new opportunities and tags drawn for your next hunting adventure.
