In order to participate in one of Tensas River NWR's Quota Modern Firearm Deer hunts, you must apply online and be randomly drawn. The 2016 application period will be open Monday, July 4 through Friday, September 6, 2016. There is no cost to apply, however, if you are drawn you will need to purchase a $20 Annual Public Use Permit (if you have not already done so). You may only apply for one hunt. Up to five people may apply as a party; however, anyone found to have their name submitted more than one time will be disqualified. If you have already applied, you can check the status of your application by logging into your iSportsman account.
2016 Lottery Hunt dates: November 25-26 and December 10-11.
