Oil bonus point question?
« on: April 20, 2015, 10:46:57 AM »
I know this has been discussed before but figured I would bring it up and see what everyone thinks. I have an 8 month old at home and I want to get him started on points for sheep goat and moose since it will be virtually impossible for him to draw a tag in his lifetime. So here's my thought. If I put his social number in the system and just buy bonus points for those animals it should assign him a wild id. When he gets his hunters ed done years down the road I should be able to buy him his hunting license with the same wild id and have bonus points available for all the years prior. Has anybody done this before or do you guys think it will work?

Pretty sure you have to be able to buy him his liscense and tags before you can even apply for points. You can't do that until you obtain a hunters ed certificate.

I'm going to do that with my kid but I waited till he's 10. And really only with the hope that he get a good deer or elk tag before he gets to old. If you get your kid 16 points before he starts hunting that's great, but for OIL tags I'm not sure if it will help him much. By then average points will in the 30's. That's assuming the system will be the same in 16 years. I don't trust the state enough to think everything will be like it is now. You might think about taking the permit app money you spend and set it aside for the next 16 years. Then add a little to it and send your kid on a really cool hunt.

Either way its a good thought. I know where your coming from. I'm just worried the resources may not sustain for that long and the OIL system will be a high dollar sport. :twocents:

Not for OIL permits.

Go get him a catch card for something. This will give him a wild id number. You can ghost point all categories in the OILs. Maybe not 65+. That should answer your question.
If it aint broke, dont fix it.

Yes you can put them in for OIL-points.

When they are old enough for hunter safety the application should ask if they already  have a wild ID # . I did the same thing with my son and now daughter...

Right on thanks for the feedback guys. I applied my wifes 10 year old for special permits last year. His dad had lost all his previous years hunting licenses and had messed things up so bad in the system I could not find him. I set him up a new account and wild Id and bought all the permits. I then started thinking I may have messed up things with the game department and called them. They were able to find his old wild id and the new one I set up and convert them over to his first wild id. I set his second one up without his hunters ed certificate and it worked so that's where my thinking came from. I am going to try it with my little one anyway this year, worse case scenario is I will be out a few bucks.

I just did this for my son online, all you need is a SSN to get a Wild ID.
For $3.30 per point, it is a worthwhile investment in my mind.
