Transfer of Controlled Hunt Tag or Permit - Residents and Nonresidents

The holder of a controlled hunt tag for big game or permit for turkey may transfer that tag/permit to his or her minor child or grandchild under the age of 18 who is otherwise qualified to participate in the hunt. The form at the link below must be used to transfer the tag/permit. Visit any Fish and Game office, or send by mail. The tag must accompany the form.

The child or grandchild may receive only one controlled hunt tag/permit per species, per calendar year. The transfer must be made before the opening date of the hunt.

Any “once in a lifetime” antlered moose, antlerless moose, Rocky Mountain Bighorn, California Bighorn, or Mountain Goat tag is not eligible for designation to a child.
Resident adults can only transfer tags to resident youth; Nonresident adults can only transfer tags to nonresident youth.
