My understanding is you keep your points. Cali does not have non resident specific tags although they do have non resident license and tag fees. If you buy a lifetime license your good even if moving out of state. Although I do not know how tag fees work. Does anyone know if you have lifetime license and move out of state do you have non resident tag fees? I think you can get around that by purchasing the lifetime license big game package?
lifetime license plus big game package gets you points for life for deer tag 1 or until you draw that D16 or A zone tag [then sadly its back to 0}....if a dude was to buy a 2nd deer tag..he would pay the non res fee..im sitting on 18 points in CA. for all species.. I hate CA.
