Improve Your Draw Odds
With the Preference Point Program

bull elk winterThe Wyoming Game offers non-resident hunters the opportunity to purchase preference points for big game animals such as Antelope, Elk, and Deer. Preference points are a way to improve your odds of eventually drawing a license in a hard-to-draw hunt area. Non-resident hunters may purchase one preference point per species per year and accumulate points until you are ready to use them by applying for a license. In the draw, 75 percent of available licenses in each hunt area and license type will be allocated to the preference point drawing. The higher number of points, the higher your chances of drawing. In order to serve the needs of our clients and make sure you can draw highly sought-after big game licenses, SNS Outfitter & Guides will help you purchase preference points toward your next big adventure.


elk hunting snsRather than having to remember to purchase points year after year, we will do it for you. With our preference point program, we will purchase your points for you. With this program, we collect three (3) years' worth of preference point fees for the species you select and purchase them for you during the preference point application period. Please note that we charge for a three (3) year block of points when you sign up with our program. We do not invoice points annually. This program is to apply for preference points only, we do not apply for a license until a hunt is booked.





It’s easy; simply fill out the RESERVATION FORM,  the name of the hunt you will be booking is called The Points Program. Name the species and years (this is done under the Starting Date Section), and after that fill out the required personal information. This information is needed for the application with the Wyoming Game & Fish. You will no longer have to think about it or worry about missing a deadline. We will contact you to let you know when your points need to be renewed. You cannot skip buying points for two consecutive years or you will lose all of your accumulated points.
