Olympia, WA -(AmmoLand.com)- Deer and elk hunters have until March 31 to enter their names into the drawing for a 2016 multiple-season tag, which can greatly increase the opportunity for success in the field.
The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) will hold the drawing in mid-April, randomly selecting names for 8,500 multiple-season deer tags and 1,000 multiple season elk tags.
Winners of the drawing will be eligible to purchase a special tag allowing them to participate in archery, muzzleloader, as well as modern firearm general hunting seasons for deer or elk in 2016. Winners who purchase the multiple season elk tag can participate in general elk hunting seasons in both eastern and western Washington. The deadline to purchase the multiple-season tag is July 31.
Winners may also choose any weapon type when applying for a special permit to hunt deer or elk.
“This is a great opportunity for hunters to extend their hunting season this fall,” said Mick Cope, game manager for WDFW. “The multiple-season tag allows more flexibility, since winners do not need to choose one hunting method over another.”
