I have a question maybe someone could help with.

I have max preference points in Wyoming for elk. I have read that Wyoming considers everybody's first choice of units first, prior to looking at anybodies second choice.

If you have max points, do they look at all of the max points applicants and if the unit you want is taken when your name is drawn, do they move on to the name applicant, and you are basically in the random draw for your later choices? Or do you still have an advantage? Do the max points only favor your first choice of units?

I was always under the assumption that if your name gets drawn, they look at your first choice, if it is full they consider your second choice and so on, and then they move to the next name drawn. Am I incorrect in this thinking?

Any clarification would be helpful.
