How can I build special permit points if I cannot hunt this year?

If you cannot hunt this year, use the Points Option hunt choice to build your special permit points. You cannot draw a permit when you submit Points Option. Instead, you earn one point for each category to improve your chance in future drawings. Check the Special Permit Application Instructions section of the Big Game pamphlet for more details. The Big Game pamphlet can be found on the WDFW website at http://wdfw.wa.gov/hunting/regulations/.

If you submit your application online, look for the Points Option at the bottom of the list of hunt choices. If you submit your application over the phone, use the following Points Option hunt choice numbers:

1999 – Deer
2999 – Elk
3999 – Turkey
4999 – Multiple Season Deer and Elk
5999 – Bighorn Sheep
6999 – Mountain Goat
7999 – Black Bear
8999 – Moose
