The California Department of Fish and Game (DFG) expects a good turnout for big game tag drawing applications this year. Hunters looking for pronghorn antelope, Nelson bighorn sheep; elk, additional deer hunts, and "X" zone tags have until 5 p.m., June 4, to have their applications at DFG's License and Revenue Branch (LRB) in Sacramento. Applications should be mailed to LRB at P.O. Box 989035, West Sacramento, CA 95798-9035. People may also deliver applications in person to LRB's office at 3211 S St., Sacramento. Blank applica- tions for antelope, elk and bighorn sheep can be found in DFG's annual "Big Game Hunting" booklet, available at DFG offices and license agents statewide,,or printed off the department's Web site at . Each hunter is limited to one application per species and each application must include a $6.50 process- ing cost for each person listed. Deer tag applications must be purchased in advance at DFG offices or through license agents. "Our receipt of applications fT)r last year's big game draw- ingsincreased slightly over the previous year's numbers," said Karen Madrigal, with the department's LRB. She said that by last year's drawing deadline, LRB had received nearly 78,500 applications for all big game drawings. Of those, more than 44,700 were for premium deer tag draw- ings for "X" zones, "additional hunts" and "area-specific archery hunts"--an increase of almost 12,700 total appli- cants since 1996. This is in contrast to overall deer tag sales, including those issued on a first-come, first- served basis until tag quotas fill, which have actually declined by more than 10,000 applications during the same time period. Madrigal attributed California's increased drawing applications to the statewide mailing of the department's big game booklet. The publica- tion was mailed earlier this month to all hunters who entered the big game drawing over the last two years. It is also available fromlicense agents across the state. Automated drawings will be conducted by June 14, and suc- cessful applicants will be noti- fied by mail. Beginning June 25, the drawing results will be available by phone during reg- ular working hours at most DFG offices, and can also be accessed on the lnternet.
