OLYMPIA – Hunters who submitted applications for a 2008 special-hunt permit can check the results of this year’s drawing on the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) website.
The results of the random, computerized drawing were verified July 11 and are now available for viewing at http://wdfw.wa.gov/hunting/permits/.
More than 60,000 hunters submitted 134,000 applications for this year's special hunts for species including turkey, big horn sheep, mountain goat, moose, deer and elk. Holders of the special permits can hunt at times and locations beyond those authorized by a general hunting license.
In addition to posting results of the drawing on its website, WDFW will notify successful applicants by mail. Those with hunts beginning in August will also be contacted by phone.
For more information on special hunt permits, see the WDFW Big Game Hunting rules pamphlet at http://wdfw.wa.gov/hunting/regulations.
