What Happens if I'm Drawn?

Successful applicants will receive notification by e-mail. Those drawn may have fees due for additional licenses and/or user fees. These may be paid online anytime after July 2 through the payment deadline. Fees may be paid with a Visa or MasterCard debit or credit card.

Hunt information will be immediately available online once fees are paid. Successful applicants will need to access and print off their specific hunt instructions and maps from the controlled hunts website once all appropriate fees are paid.  These items will not be mailed.

The actual permit allowing access to the hunt area will be mailed to successful applicants once fees are paid.  All maps and hunt information will be available online, and will not be mailed. Successful applicants may print this information by viewing their results and paying required fees.

What Happens if I'm Not Drawn?

Unsuccessful applicants will not be notified by mail, but will be awarded a preference point that will increase their odds of drawing a hunt the next time they apply.
