“Sportsmen and women drawn for a quota hunt can look forward to participating in excellent hunts,” John Bowers, chief of the Game Management Section said in a press release. “Quota hunt locations and dates are specifically selected to provide one of the best hunting experiences you can have, and we are certain that this year is no exception.”

Deer quota hunting opportunities include hunts on wildlife management areas, state park lands, dog-deer hunting and adult-child hunting.
