2020 Controlled hunt results will start going out starting May 29th

Email notifications will start going out May 29th to inform applicants of their results.  Both successful and unsuccessful applicants will be notified by email about the results of the draw.  Applicants can also access their Go Outdoors account to view their results at gooutdoorsoklahoma.com and click on Controlled Hunts.

2020 Controlled hunt sample view.

Once inside your account, under My Controlled Hunt Applications, applicants will see their Draw Status changed from 'Pending' to 'Successful' or 'Unsuccessful' based on the drawing and a 'Purchase Permit' button will appear for anyone that owes fees. Note: Lifetime License holders that do not owe fees will have permits automatically added to accounts. Anyone that doesn't owe fees will see a 'Download Award Document' button to obtain their permit, map and letter.

The deadline to pay any Controlled Hunt fees is 14 days prior to the start of the hunt.

Anyone that owes fees can pay online, or come in-person to the ODWC Headquarters. Applicants with questions, can visit the ODWC Headquarters or the Go Outdoors Help Desk at 1 (833) 457-7285.

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 through the payment deadline. Fees may be paid with a Visa or MasterCard debit or credit card.  Note: Lifetime License holders that do not owe fees will have permits automatically added to accounts. Anyone that doesn't owe fees will see a 'Download Award Document' button to obtain their permit, map and letter.

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.
