Last Chance to put in your Big Game Draw is June 2nd

Tags for elk, pronghorn, bighorn sheep, and premium deer hunts are for sale online

California hunters eagerly anticipating the upcoming big game season can now apply for tags through the California Department of Fish and Wildlife department. Applications for the highly sought-after big game drawing became available on April 15 and will remain open until June 2 at midnight.

The annual drawing provides tags for various big game species, including deer, elk, and bighorn sheep. Hunters must submit their applications within the specified period to be eligible for the drawing. The results are typically released by June 12, giving hunters enough time to plan for the upcoming season.

Hunters interested in participating can apply online through the California Department of Fish and Wildlife website or at authorized licensing agents. Each year, thousands of applications are submitted for multiple locations, making the drawing highly competitive. Many hunters have put in for a tag for an area year after year with no luck.

California Parks and Wildlife emphasizes the importance of adhering to all application deadlines and requirements. Failure to do so may result in disqualification from the drawing. The department also encourages applicants to review the regulations and guidelines for the specific species they wish to hunt.

As the application deadline approaches, hunters are reminded to act promptly to ensure their chance to participate in one of California’s cherished outdoor traditions.
