Caldera modifies hunting lotteries

-A A +A

The Valles Caldera Trust has made dramatic changes to its elk and turkey hunt lotteries, which are expected to deepen the pool of applicants during these difficult economic times.
The Trust will combine a reduction in lottery application fees with a one ticket per hunt code purchase limit to attract more participants. The Trust will also eliminate multiple-ticket discount purchases. The changes are effective immediately and will apply to the 2014 hunting seasons.
“In the past, every ticket had an equal chance of being drawn, “ notes Valles Caldera Trust Executive Director Dennis Trujillo. “However, because of discount pricing an applicant could purchase as many as 20 tickets for the same hunt code. Now all applicants are limited to one ticket per hunt code.”
In addition to the one ticket per hunt code limit all lottery application fees will be reduced. Mature bull and either sex elk hunts are cut to $25 from $30 while antlerless application fees fall to $10 from $20. Applicants may purchase tickets for more than one hunt code but each hunter must qualify for that code. For example, non-veterans may not participate in the veterans’ only hunt.
