Deer and elk hunters have until March 31 to enter their names into the drawing for a 2017 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 and muzzleloader, as well as modern firearm general hunting seasons for deer or elk in 2017. The deadline to purchase the multiple-season tag is July 31. For more information, visit WDFW’s website at http://wdfw.wa.gov/, or call the Licensing Division at 360-902-2464.
