All Work And No Play Is No Good At All
Basically, it costs $10 to either buy a point or apply. If you buy a point it is $10. If you apply it is $10 and don't get drawn, you will get a point.
Also Utah has true preference points for general deer. That means whoever has the most points will get the tag over someone with lower points.
All other hunts are a bonus point hybrid system. 50% go to the people with the most points (basically like a true preference point) and the other half goes into a random draw. It is random but if you have more points your chances are greater but only slightly. If it's your first year you get one random number assigned and if it's your fifth year you get five random numbers but only the lowest is kept. Permits for that species are then drawn starting with the lowest random number until all of the permits are gone.
Not trying to call you out UH (you know more about hunting and drawing permits than I ever will) but specie is a term for coin money.
Species is correct whether it is singular or plural. Kingdom, Phylum, Class, Order, Family, Genus, Species.

Work2hunt, If you are starting from ground zero, I'd highly advise you to invest your money elsewhere before Utah. It was once a good state for nonresidents, but since SFW began converting all the nonresident tags to auction 10 years ago, things have changed considerably, and will only get worse. Do the math, and you will see due to diminishing number of nonresident tags, the odds have gone Powerball. If you are already investing funds in AZ, NM, CO, WY, NV, MT, NH, ME, and are just looking for a snowball's chance in hell supplement, consider investing in UT points. Otherwise send your money to any of the above. I have 18 deer points and after I burn them, I'll dump all my other species and get out of the scam capital of the USA game. It's simple math. Check it out before investing.
