Any-Deer applicants and nonresidents who own land in Iowa and apply for an Antlerless-Only license and are unsuccessful in the drawing, will be assigned one preference point in addition to any preference point assigned from last year. Preference points will not accrue in a year in which applicants fail to apply, but applicants will retain any preference points previously earned. Once an applicant receives a license, the preference points will be eliminated. Preference points will apply to any zone or season.
