On Tuesday, May 29th, 2018 up to five outfitters will be drawn.

All applications will be evaluated against the Forest Service screening criteria for special use applications and the applicant must meet all the screening criteria. Therefore, being drawn does not guarantee a permit will be issued. A temporary permit will not be issued for more than 180 days, is not renewable, and it does not guarantee any future permit will be issued.
