Public Hunt Drawings

by




Start making plans for the upcoming hunting season - apply for Drawn Hunts now. The Public Hunt Drawing System provides opportunities to apply for a wide variety of high-quality hunts across the state, including special drawings for both adults and youth hunters. The online system is now accepting applications, and the first hunt category deadline is only 1 month away.

The first application deadline is August 1. Application deadlines are on the 1st and 15th of each month, with the last deadline on November 1. Drawings are usually held the following business day. E-Postcard Hunts and US Forest Service Antlerless Deer Permits require a 2020-21 Annual Public Hunting Permit to apply and will be available beginning August 15.

Highlights
• New Hunt Categories: National Wildlife Refuge (NWR) Feral Hog and Spring Turkey.
• New Areas: Roger Fawcett WMA, Hagerman NWR and Laguna Atascosa NWR – Bahia Grande Unit.
• No application or permit fees for Youth Only (age 8-16) hunt categories.

How it Works
• Browse hunts by category or location.
• Use your Customer ID as your identifier.
• Apply for multiple areas in the same category.
• The application fee is $0, $3, $10, depending on the hunt.
• After you apply, you can check your drawing status at any time.
• If you are drawn for a hunt, an $80 or $130 permit fee is required for most hunts. Some hunts have no permit fees.
