Plan Ahead: 2018 Application Changes in
New Purchasing System
To ensure a smooth application process we are encouraging all hunters to get into the new system early and review your information
BEFORE APPLYING for the draw.
- Existing hunters, PLEASE LOOK UP your CPW account using your CID and confirm your personal information, including preference points.
Confirm your Driver's License information. If your license was issued or renewed within the past 6 months, you will need to
confirm your residency at a CPW office or via email to our hunt planning team.
Applications open March 1 and close on April 3.
Don't wait until the last minute to log into the system to ensure access and confirm your personal and preference point information.
Please see the
Big Game hunting and online purchasing FAQs page for additional resources and details.
Draw results & preference points are now on CPWSHOP.com.
To check your draw results and preference points, please visit
http://www.cpwshop.com/ and log in to your personal account. "My Preference Points" will be a link on the left-hand navigation.
If you have draw results to show, they will appear under the "My Orders" submenu, also on the left navigation.
Please be sure to update your bookmarks to
