OLYMPIA – Hunters who submitted applications for 2011 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 14 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 and bighorn sheep, said Dave Ware, WDFW game division manager. Like last year, hunters were allowed to submit applications in multiple categories, boosting the total number of applications received.
WDFW is notifying applicants about the results of the drawing by email and has posted the results on its website. Successful applicants will receive their special hunt permits by mail by mid-July.
