Shootist, you need to put in for the Non-Resident Preference Point draw for Region Y. Even with 0 points, its a 92% draw. The doe tag will be area specific as these are limited quota so you'll have to look within Region Y to find a specific area you want to apply for a doe tag, if they are available. You can purchase your conservation and archery stamps anytime after you draw and you can do so online. There is no reason you can't put in now or closer to the deadline. I leave myself time in case there is an error in what I input in the computer or the G&F has a question regarding my application. Never has happened but I always leave myself time. PM me if you have more questions. Good Luck!
