Preference Points

APPLICATION

The preference point system was initiated by the Wyoming Game & Fish in 2006 to increase the drawing chances of nonresidents for Rocky Mountain elk, deer, and antelope, and the drawing chances of residents for Shiraz moose and Big Horn sheep.

Nonresident and resident hunters can apply for preference points in Wyoming through the below-listed application categories as displayed on the Wyoming Game & Fish website. Careful planning and the purchase of preference points can drastically decrease the cost of a hunt.

Lost Creek Outfitters will gladly assist with the purchase of preference points upon request.

PROGRAM SPECIFICS

NONRESIDENT HUNTERS

Nonresidents have the option of purchasing one point each year and to accumulate points until the preferred time of use and of license application. There is no limit to the amount of points one can accumulate; however, two-consecutive years without a point purchase negate all previously purchased points.

NONRESIDENT & RESIDENT HUNTERS

Nonresidents and resident can both option preference points by applying for the Wyoming license of their choice: if the application for the first license is unsuccessful, but the application for the second license is successful, then the applicant qualifies for the second license and one preference point.
