The "backdoor" situation assumes that if your points disappear, you got drawn. If there is no change, you didn't? It must take them longer to post the additional point if you did not draw??? I just checked all my points and there was no change in any of them.

Looks like I have 3rd season rifle unit 67 for deer. I plan to look at the unit this month, starting from scratch. My scouting altitude is going to be 10,000 and below Planning on migration to have begun.
CC I checked late yesterday and still had points, this morning, no points. You may want to check again for your tag. Good Luck

My points went up to "7" for 2012. After you log in, scroll to the very bottom of the page where it says "Current Preference Points" and see what it says for deer.

Didn't draw this year. Looks like OTC Elk during the archery season.

Sure something stange going on with my points. I looked at my elk points and I should have 1 and it now shows 0. I put in for a point as my first choice this year and ML E/S as 2nd, M/L Cow as 3rd. Not matter what happens I should have 2 points. I'm going to wait until the draw is actually posted and sewhat is shown. Looks like I didn't get my Deer tag as I still have the same number of point as I started the draw with.

Just checked backdoor. Looks like I won't be archery hunting 21 this year. It shows I now have 7 pts. Creeping again I guess??

My points haven't updated yet but my girlfriends and sister's did. Neither of them drew a deer tag. I don't think the back door for elk is open yet. They will draw antelope before elk so the back door for elk won't be until the middle to the end of the week.

Congrats packer. My mothers boyfriend has 21 elk points and he's hoping to burn them this year. I keep checking here to see when the back door opens for elk to let him know. He never knew of that trick.

Yes early rifle. But unfortunately I started a new job in November and I don't think I will be able to get a scouting trip in. So any tips on
This area would be great. Even an X on a map would be great LOL.

I applied for the new 48 plus above timberline but didn't draw. Goodluck.

My brother and I drew our first choice muzzle loader unit 18, 28, 37, and 371. I can't wait to start scouting. Scouting bucks at timberline all summer is almost as exciting as hunting them in September. Good luck to everyone and enjoy the greatest way to spend your time off.
