Bonus points

Utah’s bonus point system has been put in place to increase your chance of drawing a big game permit. Every time you apply for a limited-entry, CWMU or once-in-a-lifetime permit, and you don’t draw one, you receive a bonus point for that species.

Utah’s preference point system gives hunters who don’t draw a general-season buck deer, antlerless deer, antlerless elk or doe pronghorn permit a better chance at drawing one the following year. Each time you apply for one of these permits and don’t draw one, you’ll receive a preference point.
