It closes April 7, 2020.
I got on their site this morning and went through the process to brush up on the details. I found it pretty straight forward. If you would like help applying, we would be glad to coach you on setting up your account if you don’t have one.
Here’s a thought; we have had hunters hold out for the opportunity of buying land-owner vouchers and not start building preference points. Land-owner vouchers are becoming more difficult to come by. Building up preference points makes sense!
Just read a story from a man whose father-in-law hunted OTC units and, unbeknownst to his family, kept putting in for points for mule deer all the while. He now has enough to draw a limited draw unit for mule deer and is looking forward to an awesome hunt this year!
You do have to buy a “qualifying license” for 2020. A non-resident must purchase a small-game license even if you put in for points and are not planning to hunt this year. A resident has a few other options, I chose the small-game/annual fishing license and then added an extra-rod stamp! Getting it all done at once!
The bull in the pack out is featured in the September 2019 issue of Petersen’s Bowhunting magazine. Really cool story of a solo-hunter on a public land archery hunt with us in 2018. This is his photo.
