What happens if I draw more than one special permit for the same species in the same license year?

Your points in each special permit category you drew will go to zero. You can hunt each special permit, as well as the available general season, but you must stop hunting once you reach your bag limit. Drawing more than one special permit for the same species does not increase your bag limit (except Second Deer, see below).

Although you increase your odds by applying for multiple categories for the same species, you also run the risk of losing points you built up. You cannot return or transfer a special permit because you drew more than one.

To increase your deer bag limit, consider applying for a Second Deer special permit. However, do keep in mind that a Second Deer license and tag costs more than your general season deer license and tag.
