Odd/even hunting rule extended to more locations

OLYMPIA -- Two sites have been added to the list of western Washington locations where pheasant hunters will be required to observe odd/even hunting day restrictions.

Scatter Creek and Skookumchuck (both in Thurston County) game management units will be subject to the restrictions because the areas have become too crowded during the pheasant hunting season, which runs from Sept. 27 to Nov. 30 ( except at the Dungeness site, which does not open until Oct. 11).

The odd/even rule requires that hunters select either odd or even-numbered hunting days on their upland bird permit and hunt only on those weekend days which match their selection between the hours of 8 and 10 a.m. After 10 a.m. all hunters may use the sites.

In other revisions, hunters no longer may purchase both odd and even-marked permits at the same time. Only one valid permit may be purchased at a time.

For maps of hunting sites or additional information about the western Washington pheasant release program, call WDFW Wildlife Management at (360) 902- 2515 or WDFW regional offices in Mill Creek (425) 775-1311, Vancouver (360) 696- 6211 or Montesano (360) 249-6522.
