    Applying for Preference points

    Ok, so I am a little confused. I am looking at building a few preference points in Colorado and want to get my ducks in a row before the upcoming draw deadline.

    I understand if I applied for preference points as a 1st choice and then filled in 2nd and 3rd choice hunts that I would need to submit the full license fee....but what about just applying for preference points?

    Thanks

    If your asking if you still have to front the tag fee's if you apply for points only... the answer is yes. You'll also get charged the new preference point fee too if you didn't have a license in 2013.

    Even if you apply for points only, you still have to submit the tag fee. For elk, they only charge you for the cow tag. Also, if you buy a previous years fishing or small game license for $56, points are free. Otherwise they're $40 each. If you build points for multiple species, it is cheaper if you buy the previous years license.

    You can't buy the previous years license anymore...

    Actually, I think you still can. I was thinking March 1st. I had to dig my fishing license out of my wallet to be sure... It's March 31st that they expire! Sorry about that!

    I've been confused since reading this Pref Point junk.....So help me out here;

    When I first read it in the regs I thought I was getting charged this almost as a penalty for not applying last year.

    I assume that, by purchasing last years fishing license (or hunting CO last year) I am getting exempted from this years Point cost "if I were to get a point"

    If I don't select e-p-999-9 1st choice (Point only), and I draw my first choice hunt (near 100%), I shouldn't get hit with this fee. Right?

    Like was said earlier (or perhaps in another thread) wouldn't it be simpler just to charge for the point like Wyoming?
