Wyoming Preference Points. If you’re a hunter, you should apply.

Hunting Information - Wyoming Preference Points

The Wyoming preference points system is designed to improve an applicant’s odds of eventually drawing a license in a hard-to-draw hunt area.

You can apply for Wyoming Preference Points for future Wyoming big game hunts in July. 75% of the premier licenses in Wyoming go to those with the most Preference Points. If you want a quality Wyoming hunt, start building your points. The Wyoming Preference Point system began in 2006 for Elk, Deer, and Antelope. A point system for sheep and moose has been in place a bit longer.

If you already applied for sheep or moose, you were required to purchase a preference point and don’t need to do so now. If you applied for elk, deer, or antelope earlier this year, you had the option to apply for a preference point. If you took this option, you can’t apply for an additional preference point now.

You can fail to apply for a license or fail to purchase a Preference Point for one year without losing accumulated Preference Points. However, if you fail to properly apply for a license or purchase Wyoming Preference Points for two consecutive years, your accumulated Preference Points will be deleted.

Some suggestions:

  • To maintain preference points, don’t apply for an easy-to-draw units as a 1st choice.
  • If you want to hunt more often without losing points, apply for hard-to-draw units as 1st choice and easy-to-draw units as your 2nd choice.
  • If you have a child that wants to hunt, be sure to start building their preference points as soon as they are old enough.
