Default Preference points

Are there any states I can buy preference points for big game hunt without having to buy a license first? I want to start building some elk points in other states so I can have some really unique hunts in a few years

You can buy a point in Wyoming without a license, but the point itself is $50. In Colorado, I'm pretty sure you only need to buy a $10 habitat stamp and pay a $3 application fee to apply, but they make you front the whole tag fee even if you just apply for a point (which is stupid IMO, especially on expensive species like sheep and goat, but I do it anyway). The elk point fee is $40 on top of other costs. If I'm doing my math right, you would have to send colorado $629 to buy an elk point, but you would get all but $53 refunded to you in a few months.

Arizona and Nevada make you buy a license before buying points. Idaho and New Mexico don't have point systems for elk. I don't pay much attention to the others.

Randy Newberg has a "hunt Elk Every Year" Podcast that goes over it state by state. Then he has an entire series that breaks the draw process down by state.

That podcast had a ton of good info thanks for sharing. I would love hunting a few other states my only issue is it's hard to scout when you have to drive to another state.

"The gritty bowman" has a lot of cool podcasts on how to approach an out of state hunt if you're interested. Even if you don't hunt archery his podcasts are really good
