Preference level

Recommended Posts

Going into this application process my group had one preference point. We we're drawn and it said my preference point level was 2. That isn't right. Should be 0 preference level for next year. Did that happen to anyone else?

Yes, this exact same thing happened to me. 1 preference point, was drawn, now saying i have 2 preference points. Can't understand why other than maybe a typo?????

Well, at least that is a good thing.

I get drawn on average every other year on my own property.

I let my buddy hunt my property also and he gets drawn almost every year.

Frankly that kind of P's me off and shows me the system is not right.

oh well, not much one can do I guess!

When you check your results, it shows your preference level for the current drawing, not for next year. Anyone who has never applied or who was drawn the previous time gets a preference level of one. If you applied the last time and were not drawn, then your preference level would be two. If you didn't get drawn again, then next year it would be a three.

That's what I figured. If I remember right though last time I had two points and drew it noted that I was then at zero points. Which is the exact opposite of this drawing. Seems strange they would write it that way especially since I currently had one point going into the lottery. But the DNR wouldn't screw the lottery system up, right bear hunters. wink

Feathers, if you're drawn and don't purchase a license your preference level goes to zero. I'm almost sure of it. Cause you were drawn in the lottery and that's what recognizes the point system vs if it was purchased or not.

If you get drawn but don't purchase a license are your preference levels affected?

Yes they are affected. You have used your preference points to draw a tag. It doesn't matter if you purchase a license once you have been drawn. Your preference points get reset to the lowest priority.

Your preference I think will be 1 once you apply next year. It reads 2 now,because that is your level at time of drawing. One ponit from last year,and now anouther for this year. You will be 0 after this season until you do put in for 2014,than it goes to 1.

    • Careful, man.  Any such suggestions get criticized pretty heavily.  I came here around this time last year and posted something similar, and I hadn't been on this forum for quite some time.  My question was met by one of the mods with mock & ridicule.  But he thought that was okay as long as he put a smiley face or an lol after every sentence.  Funny, funny guy.  No wonder it's a ghost town around here.  Too bad, this was a must-read destination back in the day.
    • Here are a couple pictures from our WI season. We were able to take 5 birds. Two of us had two tags and one buddy just had one tag. Really think the predators in the area have these birds learning to be silent. They do not gobble much and if they do it’s mainly morning before fly down 2 or 3 times at the most. Over that last 5 years it’s been like this the first 10 years gobbling was heard through the day but now you don’t hear that gobbling in the distance or to calls very often. Still come to calls but almost ways silent now which is fine they still come in.   Finally all done and food plots are almost finished love the spring time.
    • Congrats on the bird
    • Congrats on the bird.
    • Assume you were in a blind since you are bow hunting.  That is a long time ...  active bird or no bird.   Very Nice.
    • Way to go!  That's persistence!
    • Way to go Britt!
    • So our bear friend came back today and she brought somebody with her. It might be time to quit feeding the birds sunflower seeds until next fall.  
    • I picked up that double bag deal about a month ago at Home Depot here in Sioux Falls. Ironically it was the same weekend we had the big April snow storm.
    • I see Home Depot advertising for Memorial day but no Kingsford double bag on sale. Has anyone seen any on sale anywhere? I am down to my last bag and need to stock up, Memorial weekend is usually the time to do it.
