Non-resident hunters may purchase one preference point per species per year and accumulate points until you are ready to use them by applying for a license.
In the draw, 75 percent of available licenses in each hunt area and license type will be allocated to the preference point drawing. The higher number of points, the higher your chances of drawing. In order to serve the needs of our clients and make sure you can draw highly sought-after big game licenses, SNS Outfitter & Guides will help you purchase preference points toward your next big adventure.
HOW THE PROGRAM WORKS:
Rather than having to remember to purchase points year after year, we will do it for you. With our preference point program, we will purchase your points for you. With this program, we collect three (3) years' worth of preference point fees for the species you select and purchase them for you during the preference point application period. Please note that we charge for a three (3) year block of points when you sign up with our program. We do not invoice points annually. This program is to apply for preference points only, we do not apply for a license until a hunt is booked.
WHEN TO PURCHASE POINTS:
JULY 1- OCTOBER 31
HOW TO SIGN UP:
It’s easy; simply fill out the Preference Point Sign Up form. This information is needed for the application with the Wyoming Game & Fish. You will no longer have to think about it or worry about missing a deadline. We will contact you to let you know when your points need to be renewed. You cannot skip buying points for two consecutive years or you will lose all of your accumulated points.
PREFERENCE POINT FEES: (price per point)
