Quotas are the number of limited licenses up for grabs. Quotas are only set for limited license hunts. As you probably guessed, there are often different quotas for residents and nonresidents. Obviously, over-the-counter licenses are not shown in this graph.
Often state agencies do not report actual resident/nonresident quota breakdowns. They'll say that they will be determined at the time of the draw. In those cases, we'll try to calculate an estimated quota based on actual historical draw results.
Last year the total quota for hunt 036-6 was 250 licenses, and 210 licenses were reserved for residents.
Was the quota met in the draw, or is there a surplus of leftover tags? In popular units, there's rarely any surplus. It's worthy of note to mention that just because there may be a surplus, that doesn't mean that those licenses will be available to purchase as a leftover license.
Last year, there were 133 tags drawn, and there were 117 leftover tags (after the draw) available for hunt 036-6.

In addition to a general or limited quota license, one must purchase an archery license before hunting during a special archery season. Only one archery license per year is required and it is valid for all big and trophy game special archery seasons. Archers possessing a Type 9 archery only license are not required to purchase an archery permit. However, they can only hunt in the hunt area(s) and during the dates their license is valid and may not hunt during a later regular season if unsuccessful.
