Guidelines to Apply as a Party

Party applications for game tags are authorized for mule deer, antlerless elk and horns shorter than ears antelope. Do Not include applications for Bonus Points Only in a party.

Party applications can be submitted in the following manner: Mule deer — Hunts 1331, 1341, 1371 (Party applications can include residents and nonresidents), Hunt 1107 (resident junior hunters), Hunt 1101 (residents only), Hunt 1181 (residents only) and resident depredation hunts (resident only). Antlerless elk — (The antlerless elk hunts are specific to residency. Parties must be all resident OR all nonresident, not mixed.) Hunts 4111, 4176, 4181 (residents only in the party), Hunt 4281 (nonresidents only in the party). Horns shorter than ears antelope — Hunt 2181 (resident only).

Paper Applications: The party box needs to be completed on the application for each member in the party.

There is no limit to the party size that can be submitted, but a limiting factor is the number of tags that have been available historically. For example, a party of six may not want to apply for a hunter choice that only had three tags in the previous year.

To be able to apply as a party all applicants must apply for the same species hunt and hunter choice numbers i.e. all antlered deer (resident and nonresident); or all antlerless deer (residents only); all junior deer hunts (residents that meet the junior hunt age requirements), resident antlerless elk (resident clients only), nonresident antlerless elk (nonresident clients only) and resident horns shorter than ears antelope (resident clients only).

Look at the season and hunter choice tables for the weapon type(s) you are interested in and select the hunter choice numbers for the unit groups and seasons that you wish to apply for.

As a reference for your party, check the quota column to see how many tags were available in the previous year. If the column displays “N/A” there was not a season set for that residency type and there will be no quota for that unit group and residency type. Any hunter choices listing “N/A” are not recommended for mixed resident and nonresident mule deer party applications, as there must be a quota in both columns for the party to potentially succeed in drawing tags.

During the online process multiple clients can be added to the transaction. Once you have reached the screen for the hunt selection and have selected a hunt that allows for party there will be a screen prompting you to select the hunter or hunters (party) for that hunt. Next to the name of each hunter there will be a box. You will need to mark that box to select that hunter for the hunt or you can select multiple hunters if you want the hunt to be a party application.
