Thanks Trail, and sorry I asked a question you had answered in the main section!
Are Party applications possible?
To do the bonus point only option, do I still need to buy the license?

When is the Nevada Points only deadline? It looks like it's in there three times (main section as April 22 and July 2nd and in the Bonus Point only section as April 22).
APPLICATION STRATEGY 2019: Arizona Elk -
posted 8 months ago
Hey all, just sharing some experience as a first time non-resident applicant in AZ.
As instructed, I first bought my hunting license ($160). There is a basic account creation process, but it's not really a username and password. When you do this, the system will generate a "Dept ID" for you, which appears to be the unique identifier.
Then, I went over to the draw system and created an account. This does have a username and password. At first when you create this, your license will not (necessarily) show up. However, after a day it showed up on my profile. No Sportsman ID populated on the system though. I then tried to enter the draw. You have two options for this, New or Existing Sportsman. Based on the instructions and no Sportsman ID available on my profile, I tried to enter as a New sportsman (For those who have never done online business with the department. Based on that you have to buy a license before applying, I think this would be nobody...). After entering my information, it said it looked like I was an existing sportsman.
So I tried to look around but my profile indicated no sportsman ID was associated with it. Eventually I tried to use my "Dept ID" from my license and that appeared to work. Just wanted to share this since it was very confusing for me!
Thanks Brady. I just sent you an email with some thoughts. Thanks!
