Did you get invited to Quota Hunt party and need to know how to join the fun?

What is a Quota Hunt? A Quota Hunt is a managed hunt that allows a set number of hunters to participate. A quota is placed on a hunt to protect natural resources (wildlife and their habitats), provide a high-quality hunting experience and maintain a high level of safety. Learn more about Quota Hunts our blog, A Quest to Quota.

The blog below will cover how to join a hunting party when the application has been created by another hunter. But, before we dive into the guide, let’s cover some terms you might see:

Party leader: The applicant that creates the party will be designated as the party leader and will select the hunt choices for the entire party. Party leaders will be assigned a party number to share with additional applicants (party members). Party members will be unable to edit a party leader’s selection.

How to Join an Existing Hunt Party

  1. To join an existing party, you’ll be asked for the party number. You’ll need to get this number from the person that created the group Quota Hunt application also known as “the party leader.” If they didn’t write it down somewhere, they can find it in the Application Confirmation email they received or by logging into their account and clicking the application link under category. The party number for the group hunt application will be on the left of the page.category click
