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 online and GFP acts only as a host for the list of hunters and plays no active role in this program.
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 need to register again after the first drawing for that particular hunting season are complete.
