Volunteer Hunter Program

This program was developed to provide a list of hunters willing to harvest antelope, deer, turkey or Canada geese on private land and to enable landowners to contact those hunters directly.

Hunters enter their own information directly on the Web. GFP acts only as a host for the list of hunters and plays no active role in this program.

The list is accessed by landowners who may contact hunters directly if they wish to have these individuals hunt on their land.

Names are deleted from the Volunteer Hunter system each year. If you wish to be a part of the current hunting season included in the volunteer hunter program you will need to register again after the first drawing for that particular hunting season are complete.
