Don't miss out on a chance to grab Oregon preference points! This is the last month to pick up your preference points.

You can purchase preference points in Oregon from December 1 to May 15 and from July 1 through November 30 during the points only period (you can only build one point only per year). Purchasing these points will help you in the following years' draw.

Note: Hunters who didn’t put in for a controlled hunt this year or have not already purchased a point saver point for that species are eligible to buy.

To purchase points, you must have a hunting license or you will be required to purchase one. Oregon points are labeled as Point Saver. There are no points for sheep or mountain goat in Oregon.
