Points Creep! This is the unfortunate term that people who are building points in various states come to hate. What happens in a lot of the western states that have a higher demand for tags than the state can issue is that the break point or max point levels jump one or more points every year. Year-over-year trends can help identify when this is going to happen. If you look at a hunt and it has jumped one or more point levels every year for the past few years, chances are it’s going to continue and unfortunately if you’re not in that max point pool you will never catch up and draw that hunt.
