Hunters have until May 24 to apply for special permits for fall deer, elk, mountain goat, moose, bighorn sheep, and turkey seasons in Washington State.

Special permits qualify hunters to hunt at times and places beyond those authorized by a general hunting license, according to a fish and wildlife press release. A random drawing conducted by fish and wildlife will determine winners of special permits.

Applications and licenses are available from license vendors statewide or on the Washington Department Fish and Wildlife’s website at https://fishhunt.dfw.wa.gov/. Submit applications via the website or by phone, 1-877-945-3492.

Most special permit applications cost $7.10 for residents, $110.50 for non-residents, and $3.80 for youth under 16 years of age, according to a press release. There is an exception for residents purchasing applications for mountain goats, any bighorn sheep ram, any moose, and “quality” categories for deer and elk, as those applications cost $13.70, the press release said.
