The program allows landowners to apply for an elk license, permit or a combination of both in exchange for allowing free public access to a minimum of three hunters. The landowner can designate an immediate family member or an authorized full-time employee of the landowner to receive the licenses/permit.
The landowner can also select one of the three required public hunters. The other two are randomly selected by FWP. The landowner can also offer additional public hunting access beyond the three required.
