Q: Where can I get the rules and information booklet?
A: It is best to download it directly from the website. Printed copies, in English and Spanish, are available in limited quantities ONLY at Game and Fish offices statewide. Due to a national paper shortage, each person will be limited to a maximum of two copies and printed copies WILL NOT be available from vendors as they have in the past.
