More than 2,000 hunters selected
for multiple-season hunt opportunity

OLYMPIA A total of 2,091 hunters have been selected for a unique opportunity to participate in a new multiple-season hunt for deer or elk this year.

Hunters randomly selected during recent drawings will be allowed the opportunity to purchase a multiple-season deer or elk tag from the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) that allows them to participate in all archery, muzzleloader and modern-firearm general hunting seasons for deer or elk in 2006. However, those purchasing a multiple-season tag must follow all rules in effect for each season and are limited to harvesting one deer or elk a year.

A total of 1,570 deer hunters and 521 elk hunters were selected. Hunters selected will be notified by mail or they can check online at

State residents selected in the drawing must purchase a $164.25 multiple-season tag before May 28, 2006.
