SPOKANE – Hunters reporting their 2020 black bear, deer, elk or turkey results by Jan. 10 will have the opportunity to win one of nine deer and elk incentive permits for fall 2021.
State Department of Fish and Wildlife Game Division Manager Anis Aoude said the agency is offering the special permits, which will be awarded through a drawing this spring, as an incentive to encourage hunters to report results as soon as possible.
Special hunts include five deer permits and four elk permits in various areas.”
To qualify for the drawing, hunters must submit a report by Jan. 10 for each black bear, deer, elk or turkey tag they purchased, and each special hunting permit they received in 2020. The permits will be valid from Sept. 1 through Dec. 31, 2021.
All hunters are required to submit reports for each transport tag by Jan. 31. Failure to meet the deadline can result in a $10 reporting fee, which hunters must pay when they buy a license for the 2021 season.
