Fishing and hunting are traditional forms of outdoor recreation for many Alaskans and avenues to healthy, organic, wild foods. That’s why we’re inviting you to take part in the application period now open for Alaska’s 2019-2020 big game drawing hunts.
The draw permit hunt application period occurs only once per year. The application period is open now and this is your opportunity to apply online for hunts you hope to win for the coming season. The six-week period extends from November 1 to December 17, at 5 p.m. Alaska time. Applications must be submitted online.
Draw hunt options are featured in the 2019-2020 Alaska Drawing Permit Hunt Supplement, available now at Alaska Department of Fish and Game offices, most license vendors, or online on the Drawing Hunt Supplements page.
Once you’ve reviewed the drawing permit hunt supplement, have your credit card available and apply for the draw at the ADF&G online store.
Be sure to apply early! Waiting until the last few days may lead to delays due to increased website traffic. Drawing results will be posted on the department website on Friday, February 15, 2019. Individual results will also be emailed directly to all applicants.
For more information about this year’s drawing hunts and application process, visit the Drawing Hunt Permits Information page.
We wish you the best of luck in the draw and in all your Alaska fishing and hunting ventures.
