Entry form details and restrictions

Following registration and the results of the random draw, you will receive a letter indicating where you placed. All registered applicants will be informed of the draw results before the end of May.

At the end of May, we will begin calling people to choose, based on their rank, the dates on which to hunt. If your preferred date is no longer available, we will ask you to choose from the remaining dates.

It is very important that you inform us of any change of address. Above all, please check that your telephone numbers are correct if you want to be called after the draw.

To improve your chances of being selected during the random draw, make sure all members of your party have registered.
