HOW THE LOTTERY WORKS

See www.fws.gov/refuge/McNary/Visit/Activities/Lottery_Odds.html. This site will also give you some insight into what you're chances are of getting a draw.

Each entrant will be emailed a their successful hunt date(s) with a number designating their order of blind selection for each date. Those applicants that did not receive a draw in the lottery will also be notified by email. The person with the lowest number present at the Hunter Check Station on the day of the hunt receives first choice of blind site. To ensure safety and promote high-quality hunting opportunities, each reservation holder is allowed a maximum of two guests for field blinds and three for slough blinds. After reservation holders have selected their hunting sites, unoccupied sites are filled by standby hunters according to an on-site drawing conducted at the Hunter Check Station.

BACKGROUND

The McNary NWR conforms to hunting season dates set by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW). These dates should be posted on the WDFW website www.wdfw.wa.gov/wlm/game/seasons.htm by mid-August. Shortly after season dates are established, the 2015/2016 WDFW hunting pamphlets will be available at WDFW offices throughout Washington, as well as at many sporting goods stores and online.

Each hunter may submit one entry with up to ten reservation dates for the 2015/2016 hunting season. Submission of multiple entries, or any other attempt to defraud the system, could result in all entries being rejected.

The McNary Headquarters (Fee Hunt) Unit is open for hunting three days per week—Saturday, Sunday and Wednesday—as well as Thanksgiving and New Years Day.

No adult reservations are accepted for the Youth Hunt Day, November 14, 2015.
