Wy Antelope Nonresident Preference Points

Just a reminder to everyone that if you apply for a nonresident antelope buck tag and purchase the preference point that your odds of being successful FOR NEXT YEAR are greatly increased. Sometimes they jump from only 10% success rate to 100% success rate.

You will probably not need a preference point to just draw doe tags.

Here is a link that shows you the difference that the extra $30.00 makes

Wyoming Game and Fish 2008 Drawing Odds - 5227

Just click on Nonresident under antelope and a pdf file will open.

Or go straight to the pdf file itself

Also a reminder that there may not be a left over draw this year.

Buffalobob,

You're saying that you can buy a preference point for the same year you are applying?

Can you do this with deer too?

Paul

Re: Wy Antelope Nonresident Preference Points

Yes you can buy a preference point the same year you apply. Use the left side of the form instead of the right side.

It will only be awarded if you do not get your first choice and will only be available for next year. If you draw your first choice you do nto get a preference point for next year and your $30 is refunded.

I do not deer hunt in Wyoming so I do not know about deer. I think I know where a few small deer are though and one big one unless he has been shot. I was lost at the time I saw them and was fixing to drive my truck off a cliff.

Re: Wy Antelope Nonresident Preference Points

I'm reviewing the PDF, trying to understand the data. what's the meaning of the column headings, QUOTA, ISSUED, and FIRST CHOICE APPLICANTS?

Regarding preference points:
My application says that preference points can only be awarded in 1 of 2 ways:
1. apply for full price antelope licence with preference point option#1 and be unsuccessful in drawing your 1st choice area/type
OR
2. purchase a preference point only from july 1 - sept 30 09.

Page 6 of the non resident booklet says: preference points earned and/or purchased during 2009 are NOT available for use in the 2009 limited quota drawings. They will be available for use in the 2010 limited quota drawings.
