MT is looking like more of a value now with Idaho's increase and unit restrictions. You can hunt for 5 weeks, WAY more deer, extra doe tags in many areas, and basically the whole state is wide open for your tag.
:yeah:  Yup, dropped ID and going MT this year.

Did you buy your bonus preference points last year?   If no points then no hunt this year.....
Yes I did

You can pay an extra $50 for an extra preference point when you apply, so you can bump up to one preference point if you're willing to pay the extra $.  Not sure what percentage chance you'll have with that - think last year w/ deer-elk combo that would take you from 50% w/ 0 points to 75% w/ 1 point.  Or if you want an every-other-year "sure thing" (at least right now), you can get a pref point one year, and hunt the next at 100% by paying the extra $50 to get up to 2 points.

I think they apply the point only after the draw if you weren't lucky, but I could be wrong.  It's hard to keep track of the minute details in all the states.  So, if you pay and draw, you are essentially out that money as it didn't do anything.

That's the way I understand it.  You buy point but you don't have it unless you don't draw. Then the next year you have point and are guaranteed at least in years past to draw. Never went more then 1 year without drawing

Yeah, just looked it up.  Preference points purchased that year are awarded prior to the draw.  Bonus points purchased are awarded after the draw if you are not successful.  I don't do preference points so I assumed the rules were the same.
