With a Multiple Season tag, you benefit from more chances to hunt with a wider variety of legal weapons. You can hunt any open unit during all three general seasons. For elk hunters, this includes both western and eastern Washington general seasons. Without a Multiple Season tag, elk hunters would have to choose either western or eastern Washington.
If you buy your Multiple Season tag before applying for deer or elk Special Permits, you also have more options. You can apply for any weapon type. You can also apply for both eastern and western Washington elk Special Permits, even on the same application. For example, you apply for a Bull Elk Special Permit with the following hunt choices:
1. Western modern firearm
2. Eastern archery
3. Western muzzleloader
You could not submit these choices on a single Special Permit application without a Multiple Season tag.
