Fund-Raising Random Drawing Tags

CDFW is continuing the Fund-raising Random Drawing Tags for the 2014 hunt year. Hunters may apply as many times as they wish for California’s most coveted hunting tags. The entry fee is $5.97 per application and there is no additional tag fee for the successful tag holder. Applicants are not required to possess a valid 2014/15 California hunting license at the time of entry. However, the successful tag holder shall possess a valid 2014/15 California hunting license before the tag is issued. The successful applicant will be mailed notification; unsuccessful applicants will not be notified. Applicants may apply at any CDFW license sales office, license agent or online.

The 2014 Fund-Raising Random Drawing Tags are:
