Hunter reports now due

Officials from the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife are reminding hunters that reports on their hunting activities are due by Jan. 31 for each 2008 black bear, deer, elk or turkey tag purchased.

Failure to meet the deadline can result in a fine.

On the other hand, hunters with unsuccessful 2008 seasons who submit their reports by Jan. 10 are entered into a drawing for one of nine deer or elk special hunting permits for the 2009 season. The same is true for successful hunters who filed a report within 10 days of harvesting black bear, deer, elk, or turkey.

Hunters can report by calling 877-945-3492 or online at
