Have you thought about applying for the 2022 big game draw? The Department is working on an entire series with everything you need to know when applying.
We will meet virtually every week, sometimes multiple times a week, to discuss the draw, how to apply, options for hunter education and reading the draw odds report. We will also have our big game biologists on hand to answer questions.
In this session: Casey Cardinal, resident bird biologist, will be on hand to answer your questions about applying for the Turkey Draw as well as over-the-counter opportunities. Don’t forget that the deadline for applying for the bear and cougar turkey deadline is February 12 at 5:00 p.m.
