To get a Migratory Bird Harvest Card for band-tailed pigeon, brant, sea duck, or snow goose, you need to purchase the Migratory Bird Authorization. However, first time requests need to start with the Migratory Bird Hunting Authorization Application at http://wdfw.wa.gov/hunting/permits/migratory/.
You DO NOT need to repeat this process year after year if authorized for a certain species. However, if, for example, you requested authorization for only snow goose your first year, but want to hunt brant and sea duck the next year, you need to reapply and indicate those species on your authorization application.
