Introducing the new PointGuard Plus - for just $25, an applicant will have the opportunity to surrender a hunt permit-tag and have their bonus points reinstated for ALL eligible big game species for THREE consecutive draw cycles from the date of purchase. We'll still offer the classic PointGuard, but this new option is particularly valuable for hunters who put in for multiple species and multiple Draws.

what are the advantages of PointGuard Plus?

  • For $25, an applicant will have the opportunity to surrender a hunt permit-tag and have their bonus points reinstated for all eligible big game species for three consecutive draw cycles from the date of purchase.
  • PointGuard Plus can be purchased from the time of completing an online application, right up to the deadline to update credit card or debit card information (prior to AZGFD processing hunt applications). The fee is non-refundable.
  • Those who purchase PointGuard Plus will receive priority positioning for the reissuing of hunt permit-tags that are surrendered by PointGuard members and non-members alike.
  • A free AZGFD portal account is not required to purchase PointGuard Plus. A portal account is still needed for those applicants wishing to view their draw results, however.
  • PointGuard Plus is completely discretionary.

SMH, in what way does this benefit wildlife? Was there really a need for this?

Also, how's this effect the AZ group app trick? I think this probably streamlines it. 😭

I’m sick of this whole point system here in AZ. No more special hunts or points. If you draw you just don’t get to be drawn again for three years.

I'm guessing they need to come up with a way to generate more funds to offset the decrease they are going to have in nonres otc deer tags this year. Lots of the units are going to hit the quota and close on the aug/sept hunt. Not much will be open in January when all the non residents show up to buy a tag. It will basically be coues deer on the boarder left then.

It looks like you can still only use it once per species at least. So pretty much the same shenanigans using non hunters to share points, but it shouldn't make it worse than it is now.

Only one hunt permit-tag may be surrendered, per species. If an applicant is drawn in the future for that particular species, that hunt-permit tag must be used, expending all accumulated bonus points. Only then may an applicant participate again in PointGuard (and PointGuard Plus).
