Deer and elk hunters can enter their names for a special multiple-season permit lottery

Deer and elk hunters looking to enter their names in the hat for the state Fish and Wildlife 2012 multiple-season permit drawing have until March 31 to do so.

 

In mid-April, the department will randomly draw names for 8,500 multiple-season deer permits and 1,000 multiple-season elk permits. Winners will be eligible to purchase a special tag allowing them to participate in archery, muzzleloader and modern-firearm general hunting seasons for deer or elk in 2012. Winners who purchase the multiple-season elk tag by Aug. 31 can participate in general elk-hunting season in both eastern and western Washington. Winners also may apply for any weapon type deer or elk special permit.

 

“This is a great opportunity for hunters to extend their hunting season this fall,” said Dave Ware, a state Fish and Wildlife game manager in a news release. “Rather than having to choose one hunting method over another, hunters drawn for a multiple-season permit who purchase the tag can participate in multiple seasons.”
