Preference levels: Each year that you apply for an antlerless permit and don't get drawn for one, you earn a preference point until you are drawn. If you are a first-year applicant or a previous-year winner, you are a preference level 1. The higher your preference level, the better chance of getting a permit. For example, a preference level 2 has a better chance of getting an antlerless permit than a preference level 1. Group preference works the same way. You can apply as a group for some of our lottery drawings. Your group's preference would be the same as the preference level of the newest (lowest level) member of your group.
