The White River National Wildlife Refuge recently sent out application instructions for the 2008 quota hunt seasons to all previous applicants.
If you did not receive your application instructions, or are a first-time hunter at White River NWR, you can apply following the instructions below:
When applying for the muzzleloader and/or modern gun quota hunts, applicants must specify which unit they are applying for.
Only one unit (North or South) per quota hunt is allowed.
Print or type the applicant's name and complete mailing address on the front of an official U.S. postcard along with proper postage affixed. Specify unit selection and which hunt you are applying for (muzzleloader or modern gun) on the back of the postcard.
Separate postcard applications are required for each person and for each hunt.
Each individual post card application must be submitted in an envelope addressed to the White River NWR, P.O. Box 205, St. Charles, AR 72140.
Indicate unit preference and which hunt you are applying for (muzzleloader or modern gun) on the front bottom left-side on the envelope. To apply as a group, (maximum of 10 persons), all applications must be received in the same envelope.
Successfully selected quota hunt applicants will be required to pay a $12.50 fee before being issued a permit.
All persons sending duplicate permits along with any members of their group will be disqualified from the draw process.
Muzzleloader applications will be accepted postmarked only up to June 30.
Modern gun applications will be accepted postmarked only up to July 31, 2008.
