Big game raffle tickets on sale

OLYMPIA— Tickets for chances to participate in special-permit, big game hunts are on sale at Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife headquarters here, WDFW regional offices statewide and the WDFW District Office in Wenatchee.

Beside offering winners additional big-game hunting opportunities, the raffle raises revenues for management of big game species.

Raffle tickets are $5, except bighorn sheep tickets which are $10. Tickets must be purchased by July 23. There is no limit on the number of tickets which may be purchased.

Winning tickets will be drawn at 1 p.m., Aug. 13 at WDFW offices at 600 Capitol Way N., Olympia. Ticket holders need not be present to win.

One winner will be chosen for each of the following hunts: buck deer, bull elk, moose and bighorn sheep. Winners of the deer and elk hunts will be allowed to hunt in any open unit except Private Lands Wildlife Management Areas and Game Management units 157 and 485. Those winners may purchase a second tag and can hunt in all user group seasons with appropriate equipment.

The winner of the bighorn sheep hunt will be allowed to hunt in most of the open bighorn units in common with regular permit hunters.

The moose raffle winner will be able to hunt in any moose unit during the general season from Oct. 1 to Nov. 30.

For more information call (360)902-2464. Raffle ticket order forms are available on the WDFW web site at Order forms also will be printed in the WDFW 1999 Big Game Hunting Seasons and Rules pamphlet which will be available in mid-May.
