The Fort Hunter Liggett (FHL) Hunt & Fish Program is processing accounts and selling 2020 Annual Fishing and 2020-21 Annual Hunting permits. 2019-20 Hunting permits are no longer available.
READ THE FOLLOWING CAREFULLY BEFORE BUYING A PERMIT
ALL PERMIT SALES ARE FINAL - NO REFUNDS
NEW proof of 2020-21 Vetting required for all new permits sales.
*** NEW 2020-21 ACCESS REQUEST FORM ***
The VCC will NOT accept older forms. Do NOT send Access Request Forms to H&F Program.
COVID-19 is a global pandemic and ever-changing situation. In the future, FHL may institute operational measures to combat this pandemic, which could include closing the H&F Program.
We anticipated that the rescheduling of COVID-19 postponed training exercises will severely limit hunting and fishing access during summer and fall, including the deer, elk, waterfowl and upland game seasons. Training backlog could continue through the 2020-21 Hunt Year and beyond.
Fort Hunter Liggett reserves the right to close to the public at any time. FHL makes no guarantee that hunting access will be granted during FHL deer and elk seasons. Or that there will be compensation to tag holders, if access is not granted. We will try to reschedule draw tag hunts before cancelling them. However, applying for or receiving a FHL deer or elk tag from California Dept. of Fish & Wildlife implies no obligation of performance or agreement on behalf of FHL.
Current COVID-19 measures for limited recreational access include:
- 2020-21 Two-day hunting permit sales are suspended until further notice.
- Maximum check-in for a Fishing Reservoir is eight (8) people.
- Maximum check-in for a Hunt Area is four (4) people per square mile.
- NO guests are allowed.
- Only H&F permit holders checked in through iSportsman are authorized for FHL access.
- H&F permit holders are NOT permitted FHL Cantonment (i.e., FHL's 24/7 guarded main gate) access.
Help keep H&F open during this pandemic - Support Public Safety and FHL's Mission. Be smart. Follow government infection prevention and control guidelines. How your behavior affects FHL operations influences future H&F access.
