Leftover big game permits and general season deer

Along with the sale of general tags, hunters will also have the opportunity to purchase leftover permits from the big game drawing. These licenses are sold on a first come first served basis. Hunters must first possess a valid hunting license or combination license prior to purchasing a leftover license. These can be purchased online or at any DWR Office.

NOTE: You will lose your general-season buck deer preference points if you purchase one of the permits listed below. (This does not apply to the Youth archery permits.)
