Easy. During the previous system if you had 20 points and I had 19 both non res and we both applied for 23N archery I have zero chance of drawing it. That's why I call it a preference point system. If the non res % of tags aren't drawn during the bonus pass "should be called preference pass" then bonus points are taken into account.How do you equate the az draw with a pp system? I see that reference a lot but believe it's an incorrect analogy.
The only difference between a pp system and a bonus point system, by their very nature is the allocation of random numbers; either a single chance for a random number or multiple chances.
The allocation of tags is a different function of the draw, ie 20/80 AZ, 50/50 UT, 75/25 OR-WY.
For a resident yes it is more of a bonus points system then a preference. But not for a non res.
