Every year, the Epic office looks forward to draw results. Not only our own results, but results for our membership and our Epic Outdoors license application service clients also. Calling our application service clients, telling them they were successful in drawing a tag of a lifetime, and being there to help them along the way, is one of the highlights of our spring.

Having Epic Outdoors handle your state applications is similar to having an accountant handle your taxes. We are experts in the application process in every western state and ensure that our client’s state applications are filed correctly and on time. You can also be sure that the research is done, and we are not applying you for a bad unit.


The application team here at Epic Outdoors has over 20 years experience in applying clients for western big game. The consultants spend thousands of hours each year talking to big game biologists, hunting guides, and hunters across the West. These same consultants personalize each client’s hunting applications based on a variety of parameters specified by the client, such as trophy expectations, weapon preference and hunt dates. We are not an application service that throws all our clients in for the same unit, we hand pick each unit based on what’s best for each client’s situation or put them in for units they have specifically chosen.


A few of the benefits of using our license application service are:

• Never forget an application deadline

• Don’t miss out on building points for species

• Never overlook a new state opportunity

• Have as much or as little input as you want in the application process

• Maximize draw potential as our team actively manages your points portfolio

• Save dozens of hours getting up to speed on yearly changes for each state

• Avoid the frustration of going through each state’s changing application process

Let us take care of your applications! Enrolling in our application service is easy. Remember your drawing odds are zero if you don’t apply or you miss a deadline.

What It Costs

We charge $50 per state for one species and $100 per state for two species or more, with an out-of-pocket max of $750 for unlimited applications and consulting. We are the best value in the industry. Guys switching from other services typically save hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars each year.

Getting Started

The process begins with an initial call or email to Epic Outdoors. In this initial call, we briefly discuss states, hunting goals, etc. Then, we will send you a copy of our license application service forms. Once you receive these forms, you fill out the personal information and preferences, along with the states and species you are interested in hunting. At this time, feel free to jot down any questions you may have about a state or a species.

Fine Tuning Your Draw Strategy

Once we receive your application service forms. One of our consultants will give you a call to fine tune your strategy. During this call, we take the time to get to know you and understand your preferences. This helps us develop a personal strategy tailored to your individual hunting goals. We will also answer any questions you have about state application processes and application recommendations. In our service, you will get as much input as you would like in your strategy. Some clients know specific units in certain states they would like to be applied for, so we simply file their applications and make sure they are applied on time. Other clients have more general preferences or goals in mind and allow our consultants to pick units based on these goals.

Making Application Adjustments

After this call, we will move forward with your applications. However, if for any reason you want to make changes to your application strategy, you can call at any time and make adjustments to or ask questions about applications that have not yet been completed.

Our Renewal Process

Every October, we will send you a renewal letter. This letter will show all the state applications you were applied for in the previous year and your current point totals in those states, along with any notes we have for specific state applications. During renewal time, October- January, we like to give you a call to discuss any changes that you may have for the upcoming seasons applications.

We keep this process as simple and as headache free as possible. We take pride in drawing our clients some of the most sought after permits in the West, year after year.
