Beginning May 1, 2022 the Hawaii Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR) will have a new online tool that will verify if a hunter has won a lottery prior to purchasing a lottery hunting tag. The service can be accessed by going to

Hunters have been able to purchase hunting tags and permits online since November 2021. Some tags require that the hunter win a lottery to use the tag. Previously, there was a popup for these lottery tags that would warn the hunter that the tag must only be purchased by a lottery winner. Now the system will ask the hunter a set of questions and check their status in the system to verify that they have won a lottery before they can purchase the lottery tag.

“This will help our agency regulate the sales of game tags while providing a streamline validation process for lottery hunters,” said Jason Omick, a Wildlife Biologist.

The Go Hunt Hawaii platform is also home to other useful hunting tools such as hunter education programs (beginner & advanced), applying for hunts, and purchasing hunting permits.

The DLNR Go Hunt Hawaii service was created in partnership with NIC Hawaii, part of NIC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Tyler Technologies.
