    Seems like you should wait to buy the preference point in summer IF you think you'll draw?

    Thats a good question and I should know the answer. I did draw 2 years ago when I wasnt expecting to but I cant remember how it worked out. I think I was so shocked that I had just drawn an antelope tag in the random draw to really think about it! lol I think I got a refund for the point I had paid for but I cant say for sure.

    Hi Cobb…there is no "boosting" when applying in the special draw. It is merely that fewer people apply due to the higher cost and therefore there is usually a better chance to draw. That is not always true. If you apply in the "special" drawn and draw a second choice, you pay the special fee.

    Where this gets a bit tricky is if your second choice is a tag, say like a general deer area, and there are often leftover tags, a guy can get stuck paying the "special" license fee when he didn't have to. Some guys not thinking this through can ever end up paying the special tag fee for a tag they could have bought later as a leftover tag.

    Generally you will have a better chance of drawing 2nd choice in the special draw and there are tags you can draw 2nd choice in the special draw that you might not be able to draw first choice in the regular draw with none or not many points but if you draw 2nd or 3rd choice in the special draw you will have to pay the special tag price.

    That's exactly what I was thinking. And boosting was for lack of a better term haha. But I really thought that you could screw the pooch and draw a general tag and have to pay the special price. Thanks for confirming that for me.

    But the 2nd choice goes in a special draw as well right?

    Yep, once you pay the high price you dont get any refund other than the PP money you paid up front with the application if you draw your first choice. The refund check is usually sent about a month or so after the drawing is completed and posted online. The following year you then start over with no PPs and can buy one in the application period or during the summer from 7/1-9/30 that is then good for the following year's draw. Thanks Cobbhunts, as you made my day with that comment and I dont pay much attention to what he says anyway, LOL!
