Firearms Deer Hunting Permits
- A current firearms hunting license is required to apply for firearms deer permits.
- The department is changing the procedure for applying for the Deer Lottery. Information and instructions will be available in June 2013. For further details, check the department’s website at www.ct.gov/deep/DeerLottery
- No one may purchase both a State Land Lottery Permit and a State Land No-Lottery Permit. If you are rejected for a lottery permit, you may still purchase a State Land No-Lottery permit.
Revolver Deer Endorsement – Fee: $5
Allows persons hunting with a Free Landowner Permit or Connecticut residents hunting with a Private Land Shotgun/Rifle Permit to use a revolver rather than a rifle or a shotgun to hunt deer on private lands of at least 10 acres in size.
