Just a reminder that deer and elk hunters have until Saturday to enter the drawing for a 2012 multiple-season permit.

The state Department of Fish and Wildlife will in mid April randomly draw names for 8,500 multiple-season deer permits and 1,000 multiple-season elk permits.

Winners will be eligible to purchase a special tag allowing them to participate in archery, muzzleloader and modern-firearm general hunting seasons for deer or elk in 2012. Winners who purchase the multiple-season elk tag by Aug. 31 can participate in general elk-hunting season in both eastern and western Washington.

Winners also may apply for any weapon type deer or elk special permit.

Hunters may purchase a multiple-season permit application at an authorized license dealer or by calling 866-246-9453. The permit application is $6 for residents and $100 for nonresidents.

A 2012 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.

Hunting licenses and multi-season tags can be purchased from local license dealers, on the Internet or by calling 866-246-9453. Including transaction fees, multiple-season deer or elk tags cost $182.00 for residents and nonresidents. This figure does not include the cost of an annual hunting license.
