High = more than 2/3 of applicants receive a DMP.
Medium = between 1/3 & 2/3 receive a DMP.
Low = less than 1/3 of applicants will receive a DMP.
PP Req = only applicants with preference points have a chance of receiving a DMP. May require 1, 2, or 3 preference points to be selected.
LO/DV = only qualifying landowners (greater than 50 acres) and veterans with disabilities will receive a DMP.
None = No DMPs are available.

Notes:

  • WMU 1C is bowhunting-only from October - December. A special permit is Required during the January Firearms Season.
  • WMUs 3S, 4J, and 8C are bowhunting-only during all deer seasons.
  • Antlerless-only Bonus DMP's are available in WMUs 1C, 3S, 4J, and 8C for hunters who fill a DMP in these units.
  • Preference points increase the chances of selection but do not guarantee issuance. Preference points are won and lost on the 1st DMP selection. If preference points are required on the 2nd permit, only applicants who were denied a 1st permit are eligible.
  • Qualifying landowners and veterans with disabilities will receive their 1st choice DMP in all open WMUs.
