OK Jess I figured out where the online application was but I have another question.  On the application for Tejon Ranch it says that the hunts for all hunters are 17 and 24 April.  I want to know how to apply for the hunts on 21, 25, 28 April and 2&5 may.  Thanks for the help.

I put in for the Tejon hunt on April 17 & 24. It would be my first turkey hunt. If we don't get drawn, I remember hunting somewhere recently and hearing a turkey gobble. I might try there.
