The first 20 randomly selected applicants will be notified in early March by mail. The lottery winners will be required to contact the academy to receive mandatory hunting procedures and to schedule their hunts.

The USAFA spring season will be split into two periods: April 13 to May 3 and May 4-26. Only 10 hunters will be scheduled in each of the periods and on a first-come basis.

For more details on the lottery application process, hunting procedures, base access, and safety and security requirements, visit their iSportsman website at: https://usafa.isportsman.net/Hunting.aspx

A separate application and drawing process will be held for the fall turkey season.
