  3. I'm back up to 4 points. My hunting partner and son have 5 points. We can't wait.:bowdown:
     
  4. preference points?

    So when a person applies for a license to hunt bear do they only get one preference point each year? I'd like to start getting my boys signed up for state bear tags. When you sign up is there a fee for this? Thanks
