If your zone is eligible for antlerless, as Atom mentioned you get one free by applying to MNR either in writing or by phone. Some zones have an over abundance of deer and offer additional tags for purchase. The procedure is described in the section Atom posted above.

As saskie said ,That is exactally how it works and the ministry has been offering additional tags for alot of WMUs in the last 3 years.From what I hear it has been crazy for deer in the southern part and some northern parts of ontario because the deer are over populating like crazy and harming farmers fields and a huge increase in collosions on highways. If you are hunting one of these areas you are most likely able to get a tag for sure. As I said though in one of my prior posts to be sure call the mnr office in your district for a 5 minute phone call you can find out anything you want and also ask them questions about anything else you might need help with they are always helpfull and quite nice about answering your questions too.
