Big game raffle and auction hunts

All funds raised by deer and elk auction and raffle tags go directly to the Access and Habitat Program. Funds raised by bighorn sheep, pronghorn, and Rocky Mountain goat auction and raffle tags go directly to the management of those species.

Big game raffles

Since 1995, the A&H program has raffled off exclusive tags, offering hunters additional opportunity to their controlled and general season tags. Each tag allows for hunting with any legal weapon, and extended season dates. This year, due to COVID-19, the raffle drawing can be viewed live, online on May 30th at 6:30 pm. Please visit MyODFW’s YouTube channel to join us!
