I called the Helena office and talked to a licensing specialist.  Everyone, and I mean everyone that purchased a point got a license (big game combo license).  The remainder of the licenses were then ran through a drawing with all those that didn't purchase a point.  somewhere around 3000 applicants weren't successful and all 3000 didn't buy a point. FYI

I believe that 75% of the General tags go to those with the most preference points and 25% are random draw.
That is the Wyoming system.  Not Montana.

That is absolutely how Montana conducts the drawing for general combo licenses.

Wyoming is 40% Special / 60% Regular with 75/25 split in each category.

Make sure to post that on all the hunting websites you find. If only to make it even harder to draw...

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield
