Bonus antlerless harvest authorizations

Sales begin at 10 a.m. each day.

Bonus harvest authorizations are $5.00 for any person under age 12, $12.00 for residents and $20.00 for nonresidents.

Where available, bonus antlerless harvest authorizations may be purchased at the rate of one harvest authorization, per person, per day until the unit is sold out or the hunting season ends. Although harvest authorizations will not be weapon or season specific, they will be unit and land-type (public or private) specific.
