Default Don’t want to waste points?

My dad brother and I have been putting in for awhile now and have built up on points. Long story short my dad was diagnosed with frontal lobe dementia in 2018. We never put him in for tags this year because we tried a hunt here in Oregon using 10 elks points Hunt didn’t go well. He has 15 Le deer and 10 Le elk points. Just wondering what could I do with the points transfer, sell or trade for a hunt somewhere. I’d hate for the points to be wasted been putting in for long time. Any information would help, thanks

Can't help you very much on hunts but how about looking at Utah's hunter mentoring program. With it once he has a tag in hand it allows for him to allow a young family member to shoot the animal. I believe that the age of the youngster has to be under 18

I think the mentor program is only a option for residents

I would pick a lesser desired unit, easier to draw and try to point boost someone else off his points.

Yeah, that's a tough one for sure. Not sure what the right solution would be.

Thats the risks we take building points. If I die tomorrow I leave a lot of points on the table in 4 states and I'm considered a small fish in the point game.

No residents and non-residents can mentor thier tags but all youth must be residents of Utah
