Preference Points for Moose and Bighorn Sheep

FOR RESIDENTS ONLY

Preference Points apply only to Moose and Bighorn Sheep. Applicants for a license or to purchase a Preference Point, must be at least eleven (11) years old at the time of application and be at least twelve (12) years old by December 31st of the year of application. Applicants for a license must be at least eleven (11) years old at the time of application and be at least twelve (12) years old when hunting.

No person may apply for more than one (1) Preference Point for a Bighorn Sheep and one (1) Preference Point for moose in the same calendar year.

Applicants may purchase a Preference Point for $7.00 instead of applying for a license. Applicants who apply for a license and are unsuccessful will be awarded a Preference Point.

Applicants are reminded they cannot apply for both a license and purchase a Preference Point. Applicants who purchase a Preference Point only will not have an opportunity to draw a license in the current year.

New for year 2007 is the Time Period for only purchasing a Preference Point without applying for a hunting license. Purchasing ONLY A PREFERENCE POINT can ONLY OCCUR from July 1, 2007 through September 30, 2007. This is a CHANGE from 2006. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO PURCHASE A PREFERENCE POINT ONLY during any of the initial license application periods. YOU MUST WAIT until July 1st to purchase only a Preference Point. The price is $7.00 each for both Moose and Bighorn Sheep. There is NO APPLICATION FEE TO PURCHASE A PREFERENCE POINT ONLY.

Preference Points are accumulated by Sportsperson Identification Number. Preference Points are accumulated by species and are not tied to a specific hunt area. You are allowed to apply for different hunt areas from year to year. Generally, applicants drawn to fill hunt area quotas will be among those who have the highest preference points. No Preference Points will be earned when application is made for a closed hunt area or an invalid hunt area/type.

An applicant may fail to apply for a license or fail to purchase a Preference Point for one (1) year without losing accumulated Preference Points. However, if an applicant fails to properly apply for a license or
purchase a Preference Point for two consecutive years, the accumulated Preference Points will be deleted.

Preference Points shall not be restored when an applicant causes more than one customer record to be generated, due to the following:

A different Sportsperson Identification Number was given on the application.
A different Sportsperson Identification Number was generated due to the sportsperson number field on the application being left blank by the applicant.
A different last name or first name was used by the applicant.
Such circumstances cause Preference Points to be accumulated under different Sportsperson Identification Numbers and ultimately deleted for failure to apply under the same Sportsperson Identification Number. Exceptions may be made for a name change because of marriage or divorce.

A FEE OF $75.00 (MOOSE) OR $100.00 (BIGHORN SHEEP) WILL BE DEDUCTED FROM THE LICENSE REFUND IF NOT DRAWN.

To summarize, please remember there is a difference between PREFERENCE POINT ONLY PURCHASES and an application for a license with the PREFERENCE POINT OPTION. A PREFERENCE POINT ONLY PURCHASE APPLICATION (no chance to draw a license) CAN ONLY be submitted from July 1, 2007 through September 30, 2007. An application for a license with the PREFERENCE POINT OPTION can only be made during the applicable initial draw periods.

If you have any doubt, please call (307) 777-4600 or go to our Web Site at http://gf.state.wy.us where the difference between PREFERENCE POINT ONLY PURCHASES and PREFERENCE POINT OPTIONS WITH LICENSE APPLICATIONS will be further explained.
