All individuals applying for 2017-2018 lottery deer hunts may do so between July 3rd and September 8th.  If you are applying as a group, please carefully follow directions below! 



Application Period & Hunt Dates 

The application period for quota deer hunts will open on Monday, July 3rd and will remain open through Friday, September 8th.  The drawing will take place the week of September 20th.  You MUST use this iSportsman site to apply.  Paper applications will no longer be accepted. 

The 2017 Lottery Modern Firearm Deer Hunts will be held on November 24-25 and December 9-10.  Just like in past years, you may only apply for one of these hunts.  Duplicate applications will be disqualified.



There is no fee to apply.  If you are drawn, you must then purchase a $20.00 Annual Public Use Permit (if you have not done so already).  There is no additional lottery hunt permit fee. 


Group Applications

Applying as a group is a little different with this new system.  All group members must have an individual account as detailed below (with an email address!!).  When the first group member applies, they will need to select "Create a group entry" on the first dropdown menu ("How are you entering?)".  With that selected, they will be provided with a group number to go along with their application.  THE GROUP LEADER MUST PROVIDE THIS NUMBER TO ALL OTHER MEMBERS OF HIS GROUP.  When other group members apply, they will  select "Join an existing group entry" at the first dropdown menu

If you are a new user, please create your account using the New User tab above.  When you create your account, always provide an email address, even though it is listed as optional!!!  This will allow you to reset your own password if you forget it without having to call and get it reset.  We realize that having to create an account is an additional step for our users, but these accounts will enable you to track your application status, permits, and purchasing without having to use complicated confirmation numbers and will simplify your life in the long run!
