The Wildlife Board has established the following timeframes for hunting on Cooperative Wildlife Management Units (CWMUs). Hunters should expect to hunt at least five days for bucks/bulls and two days for antlerless big game within these timeframes, although the operator may allow you to hunt additional days. Before you apply for a CWMU permit, contact the operator to obtain general information about hunt dates, permitted weapons and other rules. If you draw a permit, you must contact the CWMU operator to confirm your season dates.
Some CWMUs are authorized to allow buck deer and bull elk hunts into the month of November. You can see specific hunt dates for buck deer and bull elk on the web page for the individual CWMU.
