WDFW WEB ANNOUNCEMENT: Reminder– hunt raffle deadline August 12, 2001

Sunday, Aug. 12, is the deadline for purchasing tickets for chances to participate in special-permit, big game hunts.

Winning tickets will be drawn at 1 p.m., Monday, Aug. 13 in Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) headquarters in the Natural Resource Building, 1111 Washington St., in Olympia.

One winner will be chosen for each of the following hunts– buck deer, bull elk, moose and ram 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 Fame 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.
