HUNTING — Tickets for Washington’s 2012 raffle tag go on sale Tuesday (Nov. 1). The $10 tickets are a good deal, and they make a good gift for a big-game hunter.

The Inland Northwest Wildlife Council is selling the tickets on behalf of the Washington Department of Wildlife.  For its efforts, the council gets 10 perecent of the sales to apply to the group’s wildlife conservation efforts.

The state agency earmarks the rest of the money for moose management.

Here are the other details:

  • The tag is good next year for Eastern Washington’s Region 1, the state’s hotbed for moose.
  • Bag limit: one moose of either sex.
  • Any open moose unit.
  • Season: Sept. 1 – Dec. 31.
  • Any legal weapon.
  • Open to residents or nonresidents.

Tickets may be purchased by phone, (509) 487-8552, or at the INWC office, 6116 N. Market. A maximum of 3,000 tickets will be sold.

The drawing will be held July 1.
