About This Activity

Description

We're sorry, but this program is over. The last meeting was Friday, August 16, 2019.

Program options

Field Hunt Only:
The District offers fifteen first come, first served field hunting opportunities located throughout the County. This is an individual application and separate program from the Marsh only or Combo hunting (see below). Participants will only be allowed to participate in one program. If you do not want to be considered for the "Reserved-marsh" hunting lottery and only want to hunt the field sites.

Combo (Marsh and Field) Hunt:
The Combo hunt allows participants to use any first come, first served opportunity, which includes fifteen fields and three marsh hunting opportunities located throughout the County. This is an individual application and separate program from the Marsh only (below) or Field only hunting (above). Participants will only be allowed to participate in one program. If you do not want to be considered for the "Reserved-marsh" hunting lottery and want to hunt both the marsh and field sites.

Marsh Only Hunting and Reserved Lottery:
The District will conduct a lottery for seven reserved hunts in three reserved blinds at two locations (below). If you are interested in the reserved lottery you must be part of a group of three, with one identified group leader* for your application to be complete and considered for the lottery. Marsh Only applicants can apply individually and will be eligible to hunt the first come first served marsh sites. Each group member must complete their own application. Each group will be selected for four days; Friday-Monday, except opening weekend. Depending on the amount of applications, multiple opportunities may be provided. Rank site and date preferences with #1, #2, #3, etc., with #1 being your first choice.

Web-based Sign-in/out: The District is transitioning away from paper sign-in to web-based sign in and out for all programs. Participants will need smartphone, or other mobile internet device to access web-based programs. Participants requiring special accommodation assistance, need to contact the District at the time of application so we can best meet each individual?s needs. Notification of accommodation requirements after zone selection limits the District?s ability to accommodate.
