by Wyoming Game & Fish
September 15, 2009
The Wyoming Game and Fish Department reminds hunters that the deadline for applying for preference points is Wednesday, Sept. 30 at 5 p.m. Mountain Time.
Preference points are available for moose and bighorn sheep and for nonresident elk, deer and antelope. Wyoming law requires hunters to apply for a license involving preference points or to purchase preference points at least every other year to maintain their point totals. If a hunter fails to apply for a license with preference points, purchase a preference point or to apply for a license with the preference point option for two consecutive years, all accumulated preference points for that species will be deleted.
Wyoming has a special application period from July 1 to Sept. 30 when hunters can purchase preference points.
Applications for preference points are accepted online or through the mail. The online application service is found on the Game and Fish Web site at http://gf.state.wy.us. Applications can also be downloaded from this Web site.
Preference points are updated after Sept. 30. Hunters can verify preference point balances on the Game and Fish Web site after mid November.
