How to apply for a controlled hunt
Unlike general season hunts where anyone can buy a tag over-the-counter, controlled hunts are limited entry hunts that require you to apply in advance for the opportunity to draw a tag in a random computerized drawing.

The deadline to apply for a big game controlled hunt remains May 15.
