OLYMPIA — Hunters who bought a multi-season permit application for elk earlier this year, but were not selected in the April drawing, may be one of the additional 128 people who will be selected for surplus elk multi-season tags.
Unlike past years, hunters don’t need to camp out and form lines at license vendors.
The remaining 128 elk multi-season tag winners will receive an email from WDFW notifying them that they are eligible to buy a multi-season elk tag. Hunters can also login on the WILD System after 10 a.m. today (www.fishhunt.dfw.wa.gov/login) to see if they are eligible to buy an elk multi-season tag.
Beginning 10 a.m. Aug. 18, 2,600 deer multi-season tags will also be available on a first-come, first-served basis. To be eligible for this opportunity, interested deer hunters must have applied for a 2021 deer multi-season special hunt in the spring.
Hunters can buy licenses online or at an authorized WDFW license dealer. WDFW regional offices and headquarters in Olympia remain closed to in-person license sales.
Multi-season deer tags are $139.10, and multi-season elk tags are $182. Tag costs are the same for residents and non-residents. Multi-season deer tags will remain on sale until the tag limit is reached.
