It’s time to apply for your 2012 non-resident archery tag.  The application period for the non-resident lottery is June 1 – June 30, 2012.  Hunters will be able to start the application process on June 1st at 12:01 am. If you are a group leader please inform everyone in your party that it is time to get tags.

All of our hunters are encouraged to get their archery tag and licenses on-line at  Click on the top right icon: “Online Licenses for Fishing and Hunting”.
