Fundraising with Big Game License Tags

The California Department of Fish and Wildlife proposes to award agreements for the auction or sale of big game fundraising license tags to nongovernmental organizations for the 2024-25 hunt season.

Proceeds from the sale of these tags are returned to CDFW to fund projects that benefit bighorn sheep, deer, elk, and pronghorn antelope. Last year’s auctions raised more than $900,000 for the research and management of big game species. Past projects funded by the sale of these, and other hunting tags have included crucial habitat conservation, post-wildfire forest restoration, population monitoring, and the installation of artificial watering devices to support wildlife during drought conditions.

Please see the Notice of Intent to Award for more information on fundraising tags and organizations to receive agreements.
