    Hopefully the $285 I sent them buys me some preference points.

    Aw, don't listen to him. You've still got plenty of time. Especially for the bison tags. You can apply for them clear on in to February.

    Drawing is the third Friday in February, if I recall they accept paper applications up until the second Friday so long as they are postmarked before February 1.

    Yes, used to be that you could simply attach an additional 100 "Point" bill to your application and you are guaranteed to get drawn. Of course, now that it is all electronic, it makes it a little more difficult as you need to personally deliver your preference "points" to F&G. If you take it to the Raspberry office and give it to one of the ladies at the counter, they should be able to help you out.

    If you look in the lower left of the payment page there is a link to F&G's PayPal account. You get to choose how many "preference points" you want to buy. Cash is so 90's. Lol

    Well I applied the day they came out. My kid? Yeah waited till the last minute, and then waited some more. Typical effort from him.

    I sure hope that complementary reach around gets me some preference points.

    That's just common courtesy and will result in no preference points gained.
