Beginning June 1 hunters can apply electronically for quota hunts including youth, deer, alligator, waterfowl, dove and many others.
“Quota hunts are a great way to take part in a limited opportunity high-quality hunting experience,” says Tina Johannsen, assistant chief of the Game Management Section with the Wildlife Resources Division. “But, to take advantage of the opportunity, you must apply. Make sure to note quota hunt application deadlines so you don’t miss a chance at these opportunities.”
A quota hunt is a scheduled event at a Wildlife Management Area or other state-managed property where a limited number of hunters are allowed. Quota levels, such as the number of hunters that can participate and the harvest limit, are based upon the sound principles of wildlife management and public desires for a quality hunt. These hunts provide challenging and rewarding experiences for hunters of all levels. Selected hunters must be properly licensed to participate in a quota hunt.
Application deadlines vary depending on the hunt type. The first deadlines are July 15 for Alligator; August 15 for Dove (including Adult/Child hunts); and September 1 for most types of Deer Hunts (including Youth hunts). For a complete list of application date periods click here.
