              Hunters who bought multi-season special hunt applications can buy unsold deer and elk
                                                     multi-season tags on Aug. 22

Hunters who purchased a multi-season permit application earlier this year, but were not selected in the April drawing,
are eligible to buy the unsold 2,610 deer and 116 elk multi-season tags on a first-come, first-served basis on Thursday,
Aug. 22.

Jenika Stinkeoway, customer service manager for WDFW, said elk multi-season tags will go on sale at 10 a.m. on
Aug. 22, and are expected to sell out in 5 seconds or less. Multi-season deer tags will go on sale 10 minutes later at 10:
10 a.m. Hunters planning to purchase both tags must do so in two separate transactions.

Hunters who want to purchase a deer or elk multi-season tag must have purchased a 2019 deer or elk multi-season
special hunt application, and also have a general season elk or deer license before buying a multi-season tag. General
season elk or deer tags must be surrendered to an authorized WDFW license dealer at the time of the multi-season
purchase – no exceptions.

Wolf post-recovery planning:
Public input and public scoping open houses

Biologists are confident that Washington’s

recovery. Since 2008, the state’s wolf
population has grown an average of 28% per
year. WDFW documented a minimum of 126
individuals, 27 packs, and 15 successful
breeding pairs during the last annual population
survey.

WDFW seeks public comment on North Rainier elk herd plan

WDFW opened a public comment period Aug. 1, on a draft plan for
future management of the North Rainier elk herd.

The North Rainier elk herd’s range encompasses portions of Pierce,
King, Snohomish and Kittitas counties. This herd is an important
resource that provides significant recreational, subsistence, cultural,
aesthetic and economic benefits to Washington citizens.

“We’ve seen a healthy increase in this population since 2002,”said Larry
Phillips, Region 6 Director. “That increase has been great for
recreational opportunities, especially wildlife viewing and photography.”

Since the last herd plan was adopted in 2002, the population has
increased from approximately 1,800 elk to 4,500. The draft plan
proposes a population objective for the North Rainier Elk Herd of 4,850
elk.
