    NR Elk application and PP use.

    Am I correct in my understanding of the draw and pref point usage? If I apply for a LQ unit or general elk tag and do not draw due to PP requirement, but luck out a random tag my PP's will be used due to drawing a tag in any fashion. Also, as I look at draw results all NR general tags were 1st choice draws? No chance to draw a general as 2nd choice. Thanks in advance for sharing info from those of you with knowledge of the process.

    Yes, you will lose your points if you draw your 1st choice, it doesn't matter if you get it in the preference or random part of the draw. No general tags were drawn as a 2nd choice in the regular or special. Good Luck!

    What about limited quota areas and 2nd choice tags drawn?

    I drew a tag the way you described and lost my points. If you draw your first choice your points are gone.

    So you will not draw a second choice tag for elk in any unit regardless of PP?

    It's possible. Just a quick glance it looks like units 47, 97, and 125 could be drawn as a second choice. Those probably aren't popular hunts for a reason. Most likely little to no public land. (at least where the elk are) There are also several units that have cow tags you could draw as a second choice.

    And a cow/calf second choice would allow you to keep your PP and would be a likely draw in many units...correct?
