Quota Hunt Permit Trading?

Is this something that's possible? I put in for the Sambar hunt on St. Vincent NWR but didn't get pulled. Don't know if you can trade or give away that permit if you want.

    I don't think those are transferable.

    Most permits are not transferable....the "gaming" was so bad something like 15% of the applicants had about 35% of all permits....and some WMAs had the same 8 or 10 hunters with permits every season...despite hundreds applying...

    Still happening on some of the better areas.

    Always hear this but no explanation of how it is possible.  The guest provision can be used by someone willing to shop around and be a "paying guest" if he found the right permit holder willing to sell out and be present while hunting on an area.  A few holes still left in the system I guess.  Much better than it was IMO.

    Costs a lot less than a lease if you spend your time scouting and know an area well. Food for thought. Not illegal.
