If I understand the preference points system for antlerless elk correctly then permits should go to the people with the most points. I may be mistaken in this, but I thought someone could clear this up for me. I now have 2 points, which is the most anyone could have to this point. Is it possible that next year I could not draw out while someone with 1 point does, or will the permits go to those with 2 points before everyone else. I guess the proclamation just wasn't clear enough for me. Thanks ahead of time :D .

my understanding is they spilt that tags up and give some money to the hight points and so on and work there way down the list. but i could be wrong.

I've had it explained to me that they take the number of tags and they give so many to the youth hunters. Then they divide the remaining between the highest and the midrange. 1/2 of the remaining tags goes to each.
As proof I've had family with half the amount of points draw out and I got nothing that year.
I could be wrong as well. I'm not absolute on this and have wondered how and why.

You guys are talking about BONUS points, which they do split. He is asking about PREFERENCE points. With preference points, only those with the highest points draw. Those with less than the highest amount of points will draw only if they run out of applicants with the highest, and then they move down to the next tier of point holders. Hope that helps.

Thanks for the responses. it's good to see that I wasn't the only one a little confused about the difference between bonus and preference points. :D
