All applications must be received by 5 p.m. on the Tuesday at least two weeks before the hunt date. The application and details are on the DFG Website at http://nrm.dfg.ca.gov/GameBirdHeritageHunts/Default.aspx, where hunters can create a DFG Web account to be used for all online special hunt applications.
Drawings will be held immediately following the application deadlines. Results will be available online and successful applicants will receive maps and specific hunt information and/or permits in the mail. Any vacancies after the drawing will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
