Hunters Must Purchase Wyoming Preference Points by November 2nd
As a reminder, Wyoming no longer provides the option to purchase a point if you are unsuccessful in the license draw. Instead, you must go to the Wyoming Department of Game and Fish (WDFG) website and purchase your points during the preference point purchase period of July 1-Nov. 2.
To get started, CLICK HERE and follow the steps to purchase your preference points. If you don’t already have an account with WDFG, you will need to create a new account. It’s fast and easy to do. You DO NOT need to know areas to purchase points. They are simply points that are attached to your account.
Why Purchase Preference Points in Wyoming
Whether or not you have specific plans to hunt in Wyoming, purchasing preference points now is a great idea. This will make planning a future hunt much easier. And it will open up more opportunities down the road.
As a nonresident hunter, having preference points will greatly increase your chances of drawing your licenses. Most of the elk areas require points to draw. Many Mule deer units also require points to draw. While some antelope hunts can be drawn without points, having preference points will greatly increase your options, and help ensure that you draw a tag when you’re ready to book a hunt.
Purchasing points in Wyoming is relatively inexpensive. Unlike some other western states, you are not required to purchase a nonresident hunting license in order to acquire points. You can simply log into your account on the WGFD website, and purchase one point, per species, per year. A Wyoming preference point for antelope is $31. A point for deer is $41. And a preference point for elk in Wyoming is $52.
