After joining the Dedicated Hunter Program

Here's some information on how the program works.

The moment you find out you have drawn a place in the Dedicated Hunter Program, you'll need to know how to get your deer permits each year.

The main source of information for Dedicated Hunters, is this, the DWR Dedicated Hunter web pages. On rare occasions, DWR may also send special reminders to Dedicated Hunters who have provided an email address during the online application.
