If I get a preference point this year. It states if you don't buy another after two years you lose it. Does this hold true if I apply for Limited tag(and don't draw) but don't purchase another preference point in the draw? My question may be a little confusing. But my thought process is: Get the point, which I know would guarantee me in the draw I'm applying for. I may or may not want to draw this coming year, or the year after, but eventually I will. Saves me from planning this early I guess.

In Wyoming , you do not get a point if you do not draw in the regular drawing. You must buy it. So, i would think you must buy the point to keep them.

Its $50 right? Cheap insurance to guarantee you get the tag when you want it.

You dont need PPs in Wyoming to enter the Random Draw exclusively - not good odds, but....

I lost Antelope points, because I didn't pick one up one after a couple years. If you don't keep increasing the point balance, they'll wipe 'em out.

Not good odds in the WY random but they are about as good as a lot of the draws in NM!

Yup you must buy it, agree with everyone above, it's cheap insurance, you can't get years or points back; 50$'s well spent. If nothing else you could always "share" your points with a buddy or two.
