Hunters have a chance to win one of nine 2013 special hunting permits if they report this year’s hunting activities for black bear, deer, elk or turkey to the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife by Thursday, Jan. 10.
Hunters that meet the deadline will be included in a drawing for five deer permits and four elk permits in various areas of the state. Those permits will be valid from Sept. 1 through Dec. 31, 2013.
To qualify for the drawing, hunters must submit a report for each black bear, deer, elk, or turkey tag they purchased and for each special hunting permit they received in 2012.
All hunters, whether successful or not, are required to submit hunting reports for those species by Jan. 31.
Hunters can report by phone (877 945-3492) or at https://fishhunt.dfw.wa.gov.
