Primarily for Small Game and Waterfowl

This system is used for making reservations on specific properties primarily for small game and waterfowl hunting. Some properties require reservations for turkey hunting.


Please note that the reservation system will be down for maintenance starting at 11:00 pm April 7, 2020 that will continue into the early morning hours of April 8, 2020.  

  • Reservations will be available as soon as maintenance is completed. Unfortunately, we do not know what time that will be.  
  • We encourage hunters to continue trying to make reservations online or by phone the morning of January 8th until the system is back up.  

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​What You Need to Make a Reservation

Be prepared with the following:

    • Your CID number (Customer Identification Number) that is on your hunting license. 

    • You must already possess the current year hunting license for the kind of reservation you are making. 

    • A list of properties and areas you are interested in reserving.

    • Check the Property Conditions Report (see section below).

    • Know what type of hunting is allowed and during which dates 

      • Carefully read the regulation of your property to understand what is or isn’t allowed. For example, some properties are limited to migratory bird hunting only – pheasants and pigeons do not fall under the definition of migratory birds. Some properties allow deer hunting any day but limit waterfowl days. Please check the regulations to make sure you are in compliance.
