Results available for special hunt drawing

OLYMPIA - Hunters who submitted applications for 2015 special-hunt permits 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 June 11 and are now available for viewing at https://fishhunt.dfw.wa.gov/wa/specialhuntlookup . Holders of the special permits can hunt at times and locations beyond those authorized by a general hunting license.

This year's application forms included a range of hunting options for deer, elk, moose, black bears, mountain goats and bighorn sheep, said Nate Pamplin, WDFW wildlife program administrator. Like last year, hunters were allowed to submit applications in multiple categories.

WDFW is emailing applicants who checked the box to be notified about the results of the drawing and has posted the results on its website. Successful applicants will receive their special hunt permits in the mail by mid-July.
