How do they award your 2nd or 3rd choice? I'm thinkin you would need to be in the ball park with points for your 1st choice? I can't decide whether to apply for Type 9 1st and General 2nd or the opposite.

Points only apply for 1st choice.

They try to give all 1st choices out, then if you don't have a tag on 1st choice, 2nd choices are essentially random. Then 3rd

In other words, if it takes points to draw ad first choice you don't have a chance as 2nd or 3rd choice

Small choice in the random draw after that

What Bob said. I don't think it's possible for a non-res to draw an Any Elk type 9 tag or a General tag as a second choice in today's environment.

Very few 2nd choice licenses are drawn but it is possible I guess. Look over the draw odds to see what was left for 2nd choice. https://wgfd.wyo.gov/Hunting/Drawing-Odds

Yep… do some homework and you can find areas that don’t sell out in round 1. But there will be a reason so study up on the regulations for that license.

And as others have said, don’t bother going over draw odds for 2nd choices. If you don’t draw your first choice you keep your points and can buy another the following year.
