Multiple-season hunting permit
applications available

3/31/06 Correction: Deadline to apply for the multiple-season hunt permit is April 9, 2006.

OLYMPIA – Deer and elk hunters have an opportunity to participate in a new multiple-season hunt this year.

Hunters can enter a drawing for a limited number of special permits that would allow them to participate in archery, muzzleloader and modern-firearm general hunting seasons for deer or elk in 2006. Those selected must follow all rules in effect for each season.

Hunters can apply only once for each species, and are limited to harvesting one deer or elk.

In April, the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) will randomly draw names for 1,500 multiple-season deer permits, and 500 multiple-season elk permits.

“This is a great opportunity for hunters to extend their hunting season this fall,” said Dave Ware, game manager for WDFW.

Hunters can purchase a multiple-season permit application at an authorized license dealer or by calling (866) 246-9453. The permit application is $5.48, and the deadline to apply is April 9. A hunting license is not required to apply.

Washington state residents selected for the special permits must purchase a $164.25 multiple-season tag, along with a regular hunting license, to participate in the special hunt.
