Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife


Does WDFW have a program to help the public access private lands?

  • Yes. Since about 50% of Washington is in private ownership, many public hunting opportunities rely on landowners opening their lands. In Washington, hunters must obtain landowner permission to hunt on private land; however, WDFW is working with hundreds of landowners to help acquire permission.
  • Currently, the WDFW private lands access program has over 600 landowner cooperators and over one million acres of private land under agreement in eastern and western Washington.
  • For more information, please visit WDFW's Private Lands Access website.
  • Also refer to the WDFW's GoHunt Interactive Mapping website
