Step 1: What Are Controlled Hunts?
Awarded to applicants selected in a random drawing, controlled hunts are held in situations where unrestricted hunting would pose safety concerns or where overharvest might occur. Several of the controlled hunt choices are highly sought after and often have many times more applicants than available permits.
