Example: For a license that is listed as area 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15 Type 3, regardless of what specific hunt area you wanted to hunt, you would select 10 in the hunt area and 3 in the type box. The license will be issued as 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15 type 3 and you can hunt in any of these areas. To participate in the drawing for this combination, you must list ONLY the first hunt area.
