Draw Hunt Application Process

What is a Draw Hunt?

Due to the NRA Whittington Center's incredible location and beautiful surroundings, the number of interested hunters consistently exceeds the amount of animals available for harvest. In order to manage the herds and flocks appropriately, we rely on a fair and random drawing of applications in order to select and reward hunters with the hunt of their dreams.

Draw Hunt Selection Process

Not everyone that applies will be selected, but that does not mean you can only enter once. A $10.00 service fee is required with every application. 

If your application is one of the randomly selected winners, you will be notified via certified mail. At that time you can arrange the date of your hunt as long as the date is within the appropriate season.

Each applicant drawn for a hunt is subject to the appropriate hunt service fee of $10 and rules. See application for draw hunt rules.

A Draw Hunt Application is not required for Guided Mule Deer, Guided Spring Turkey or Unguided Spring Turkey hunts.
