If the number of applications for Camp Ripley archery hunt permits exceeds the quota in the annual hunting regulations, a preference drawing shall be used to select permit holders. A person may enter the preference drawing by supplying the person's driver's license number, official state identification number, or 13-digit firearms safety identification number on the application. Applicants establish a preference rating based on the number of times they have applied in previous years and have not obtained a permit. The preference rating increases each year the applicant applies unsuccessfully. Persons applying for the first time have no preference. Applicants receiving a permit lose their accrued preference.
Up to four persons may apply as a group. Either all members of a group will be selected or none will be selected. The preference rating of applicants who apply as a group is based on the individual in the group with the lowest preference. All group members must apply for the same time period.
Applicants for permits must:
be at least 12 years of age prior to the third Thursday in October;
apply for only one of the hunting periods;
submit no more than one application per year;
apply by the Friday nearest August 17; and
pay a nonrefundable application fee as provided by statute.
