You'll need to check the regs because they change the rules often. I know last year if you drew, you lost all your points. I had six and drew a 2-point hunt. Points are back to zero. One year (I think) they let you keep what you didn't need. I wouldn't count on it happening again, but, you never know!
That pretty much knocks you down to OTC areas only for 15 years to draw the best areas. That stinks.
