    This varies quite a bit from state to state. I know about the only way to get your money back in Wyoming is if you die, or are seriously ill.

    If its medical, you'll need a letter from your Dr. Short of that its almost impossible.

    In Colorado you can turn in any tag before that season opens for a refund. They don't refund the application fee or the fee for a Habitat Stamp. In certain situations they will refund after the season opens. If you used preference points to draw a tag you can have your preference points reinstated but you must forfeit all your tag money. No preference point will be awarded for that year. See page 7 in the Big Game Brochure for information.

    In Nevada you can turn your tag back in and keep your points up to right before the season starts. If you want your money back you have to petition with reasonable cause (disability, death, military transfer).

    Any idea if they return your preference points due to a medical return?

    In 2012 I was in Wyoming hunting antelope prior to Colorado's antelope season. I had drawn a great Colorado tag that took 12 points. We had planned on hunting my Colorado goat on the way home from Wyoming. Got a call that my father was not doing well and I should get to Calif. as fast as possible if I wanted to see him before he passed. Stopped by G & F Office on the way home and turned in my tag. Got all my points back after I surrendered the tag.

    My point is...the system works, just follow the steps outlined in the regs.

    Here's the Wyoming regulation concerning licenses. In particular Sections 22 & 25 cover this issue. The way I read it, nothing is mentioned that you would get your preference points back, but instead they will offer you the same license the following year.

    If those circumstances arise before (about) June 1, you can withdraw your application (Wyoming), which would be before the draw, of course.
