HUNTING — Wednesday (May 22) is the deadline to apply for Washington's special big-game hunting permits for deer, elk, mountain goat, moose, bighorn sheep, and turkey seasons.

Apply online.

Permit winners will be selected through a random drawing in late June.

Update your email and mailing address in the system when purchasing your special permit applications and licenses. Each year, hundreds of special hunting permits are returned because of invalid addresses, Washington Fish and Wildlife Department officials say.

Idaho's first controlled hunt application period ended April 30.  The second CH application period for leftover tags is June 15-25.

Montana's main deer and elk special permit application period ended March 15.  Applications for antelope and secondary elk and deer permits is June 1.
