As of Aug. 2nd you can get the usual OTC bow permits but until September 1st you can order by mail the single Either Sex Permits.  The link below will take you to the DNR site where you can download the application to mail.

Thanks for reminder, I always forget.  Hopefully they mail them out sooner than 5 days before Oct. 1

What’s the benefit of doing it this way instead of OTC?  Serious question smile

I assume if you miss this deadline, then you have to buy a combo OTC, which of course costs more money. $$$$

the only thing the mail in gets you is 1 permit. correct?? the way my archery hunts have been is almost a reason for me to get the 1 permit. this year I plan on NOT passing on a doe on my place. my wife didn’t want me to shoot a doe but, I’m gonna get one this year she says SAY NO TO THE DOE there are enough of them at my place in schuyler county. use my doe tag and wait for the big one when I hunt private property in pike in November on a 22 yr old private property lease . I guess if you only want to kill one deer the single tag is for you give the extra $20 to the state they could use it.
