Before applying for a wild bison license, the applicant should review the tentative wild bison hunting information, specifically the limitations column, to determine the type of license that is valid in the specific hunt area for which you are applying.
The wild bison priority list is valid from August 1 of the application year to January 31 of the next year. Applicants may apply for either the Type 1, any wild bison priority list or the Type 4, female/calf wild bison priority list. There is no guarantee a wild bison hunt will be held in any particular year.Hunting opportunities depend on bison movement into the hunt areas.
If an applicant is selected from the priority listing, a wild bison license fee must be remitted to the appropriate regional office before a license is issued.
No person who is issued a wild bison hunting license and who harvests a wild bison after January 31,2001, shall be eligible to apply for or receive a hunting license for wild bison in any future year.
