Please visit our 2024 Special Hunt Permit Draw Updates webpage for an important update about this year's special hunt permits.

Special hunt permits, big-game auctions and raffle permit hunts offer a chance to participate in a coveted hunt while directly supporting conservation and management in Washington.

Special hunting permit applications are available for deer, elk, mountain goat, bighorn sheep, moose, wild turkey, and bear. You can find more information on special permits, including how to apply, through the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife's myWDFW website.
