LOG IN EARLY: Hunters are encouraged to visit the system to log into their online account - or create an online account, if they don't already have one - and to get familiar with the system before making 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.

    • 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. Please check the regulations to make sure you are in compliance.
