Deadline to apply for special hunt permits is May 18


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.

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

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

Applications must be submitted on that website or call 877-945-3492.
