Processed well in advance of the hunt, hunters must bring with them and have in their possession:
- LICENSE: A valid current year California Hunting License
- DEER TAGS: Each hunter must be able to trade in one or two current year/season California deer tags (if you want to only harvest one deer you only need one trade in tag) (ANY ZONE OR HARVEST METHOD). These tags must be unfilled and are to be purchased separately by the hunter well in advance of the hunt on Catalina Island. When you arrive on the island, these California DFW State Tags will be traded in for the Catalina Conservancy Private land Management (PLM) Tags, which are approximately $80 each and are not included in the hunt package fees. Once the California DFW tags are traded in for PLM tags, they are no longer good outside of Catalina Island, regardless of harvest success.
