Points are for trophy hunt areas. My wife and I apply for area 201 for bull elk every year. They give out around 45 licenses and around 2000 people apply for them every year. Each year you don't draw your first choice you get a point. The 201 early season bull hunt takes around 17 points to draw. I think I'm up to about 10 or so. That means in roughly 7 more years I can go hunt in an area where a 380 class bull is "small".
My wife and I are both applying for moose this year. Loaning the DOW just short of $1000 every spring, just so they can give most of it back is... entertaining.
