What are these NR preference points offered for $50 when you apply for the big game combo? I was under the impression that bonus points were used in the limited draws for deer and elk in Montana, so what are the preference points used for? I bought one last year when applying for the big game combo, but when I logged into my account on the website today I do not have any preference points listed. Are they to draw the big game combo? If so, they are a rip off since they have had surplus licenses for several years now.
