Hunters wanting special permits have until May 18

April 26, 2012

Hunters have through May 18 to apply for special hunting permits for fall deer, elk, mountain goat, moose, bighorn sheep, and turkey seasons in Washington.

Winners will be selected through a random drawing conducted by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife in late June. The special permits qualify hunters to hunt at times and places beyond those authorized by a general hunting license.

Applications may be purchased from license vendors or on WDFW’s website at https://fishhunt.dfw.wa.gov/wdfw/special_permits.html.

Applications must be submitted on that website or by calling 1-877-945-3492.

Before applying for a special-hunt permit, hunters must purchase an application and any necessary hunting licenses and transport tags for each species they wish to hunt. All are available online, by phone, or from a licensed dealer.

Most special hunt permit applications cost $6.60 for residents, $110.00 for non-residents, and $3.30 for youth under 16 years of age.

Winners will be notified by mail by mid-July.
