Multiple Refuge Hunt Units will be open and hunters will be assigned to a specific unit during the drawing process. Shotguns and bow and arrow will be allowed as hunting weapons for both species, adding muzzleloaders for hogs. For hunters choosing to use a gun, only lead free, non-toxic (steel, bismuth, copper or tungsten) shot including 00 buck for hogs and #4 shot or smaller for turkey may be used and possessed while hunting on the Refuge. All hunters must be in compliance with State of Texas hunter education requirements. In addition, those who will be using archery equipment must have proof of completion of a bow hunter safety course. Depending on demand, one or more units may be designated as a bow hunting only unit.
As with the 2012 Archery Deer Hunt, the permit application process will be managed through a web-based system operated by the Kinsail Corporation. Hunters will be able to apply on-line for the feral hog hunt beginning November 1, 2012. Applications for the wild turkey hunt will be accepted beginning one month later on December 1. All hunters will have 30 days to apply, and selected hunters will be notified within a few days of the drawing. The permit website can be found beginning November 1 at www.hagermanpermits.com. Hunters will complete the application process on-line and submit the required fee (credit cards accepted). A non-refundable $10.00 application fee per person will be required and entries are limited to one per person. Hunters unable to apply on-line may pick up a paper application form at the Refuge Headquarters, or print one from the hunt permit website. Any paper forms must be sent to Hagerman NWR, c/o Kinsail Corporation, P.O. Box 7087, Arlington, VA 22207, by the deadline.

Saginaw, MI – The period for submitting an application for a Shiawassee National Wildlife Refuge deer hunting permit at is now open. The last day to apply is August 15.
The application web site will have a different look to it this year. Kinsail Corporation is running the site, accepting the applications, accepting the application fees, running the draw, accepting permit fees, distributing permits, and accepting survey info. Using this private corporation will improve customer satisfaction and reduce the refuge's work load.
Hunters are strongly encouraged to apply online. The link to the application site can be found on the refuge's home page. Paper applications may still be submitted, but they must be mailed to Kinsail Corporation.
The structure of the hunt is generally the same as in previous years, with a similar number of hunts and permits. However, this will be the first year that permits will be issued via a random lottery process. The point system was eliminated after the 2011 season.
The price of a permit is still $15. However, it now costs $5 to apply.

The requirement is expected to start in calendar year 2012.
The Continuing Education vendor will be responsible for administrative processing of applications and renewals from education providers, maintaining a public listing of all approved providers, and collecting course completion information from providers by PTIN to provide to the IRS through a single source.
