Premium deer, elk and pronghorn tag holders whose 2021 hunting seasons were cut short or eliminated as a result of wildfires and public land closures now have the opportunity to return their unfilled tags and have their preference points reinstated. Elk and pronghorn tag holders can also request a refund of their tag fees. The unfilled tags and written requests must be mailed to CDFW, postmarked no later than Saturday, April 30.
