So just a heads up to all of you applying in AZ. Be sure to check your portal account and make sure your bonus points are still there. My girlfriends were there and correct about a month ago. Then somehow another account was created for her and the bonus points disappeared. After a few phone calls with AZGFD they say they have it fixed, but the points are still not showing correctly. They say they don't use that account for the draw anyway, but I am still skeptical. We will see what happens.

On another note with that error now I am skiddish about Nevada. I went in and created an account today and it shows I have 0 points. Does anyone know if they have updated that piece since the transition to the new system?

I just checked mine and on portal account has no record of my application this year (done1/24) and states I have no bonus points.

I called the office and found this out- my birthdate was listed incorrectly as apparently I didn't enter a birthdate when I opened the portal and the system defaults to a January 1901 date??? The nice woman I spoke with said she will contact IT to fix it. I will be checking back.

She did say that the portal is not used for the big game draw but is good to check draw results.

One thing I did learn during this. If you want to buy point guard the email address on the portal account needs to match the email you use when submitting the application. For me I wanted the application sent to my email instead of the girlfriend's and it was not letting me purchase the the point guard.

Not sure why they use the email address to match everything up instead of your social security number, but that is the case.

I just ran into the email address not matching and Point Guard. When I applied for antelope I used my email address for convenience. The other person I applied with had 20 bonus points and because the email didn't match the portal account info it wouldn't allow Point Guard to be purchased.

nvgoat, I think that's awesome that you're still bowhunting at 117 years old. What an inspiration!

I wonder what his PSA is at 117 years old? They say pretty much every man over the age of 90 has prostate cancer...

nvgoat, check again. Hopefully they updated your account. My apps for elk/antelope are listed on my portal.

Creed, fix the email address, give it a couple of days to update and you can then add the point guard via your portal account. I just did this for elk.

Thanks. I went back in and it did allow me to purchase point guard.
