Deadline nears for multi-season hunting permit drawing

Deer and elk hunters have until March 31 to enter their name in a drawing for a 2010 multiple-season permit, which can greatly increase their opportunities for success in the field.

In early April, the state Department of Fish and Wildlife will randomly draw names for 2,000 multiple-season deer permits and 600 multiple-season elk permits.

Among the advantages winners have is being eligible to purchase a special tag that allows them to participate in all general archery, muzzleloader and modern-firearm hunting seasons for deer or elk in 2010.

In addition:

  • Multiple-season elk tags allow the bearer to participate in general elk-hunting seasons in both eastern and western Washington.
  • Any multiple-season tag allows a hunter to apply for a permit for any special archery, muzzleloader or modern-firearms permit-only hunt.

Hunters may purchase a multiple-season permit application at an authorized license dealer, via the Internet or by calling toll-free 1-866- 246-9453. The permit application is $6.50 for residents and $60.50 for nonresidents.

A 2010 hunting license is not required to submit an application, but winners of the drawing must purchase one before they can purchase a multiple-season tag.

For more information, visit the department’s Web site or call the licensing department at 360-902-2464.
