Without having a hunting license and participating in the once in a lifetime hunting passport, can that individual put in for controlled group hunts with a mentor and draw a tag or are they only able to hunt general open season hunts?

After an individual has purchased the once in a lifetime passport to hunt with a mentor can that individual put in for controlled hunts with his/her mentor hunter as a group hunt?

Answer

The hunting passport cannot be used to apply for a controlled hunt.

A person holding a passport can only hunt in a general season hunt with their mentor.
