Washington Hunting Deadlines
Washington Hunting Information
- Point System: Utah has a bonus point system in place for its limited-entry tags (elk, mule deer, antelope) and its once-in-a-lifetime tags (moose, sheep, goat, bison). You will receive one extra chance for each year you have applied but were unsuccessful. Furthermore, 50% of the available tags are reserved for the applicants with the most bonus points with the remaining 50% allocated in a random drawing among all applicants. Utah has a true preference point system in place for its general season mule deer tags. Therefore, you must have the highest number of points among all applicants in a particular unit to receive a tag.
- License Purchase Yes/No: Yes, as a prerequisite of applying, a $65 non-resident hunting license must be purchased. WTA TAGS will handle this purchase for you as part of the application process.
- Party Applications: Up to four applicants may apply together for all Utah’s limitedentry tags and its general season mule deer tags.
- Hunter’s Safety Card Requirement: Anyone born after December 31, 1965 must have a hunter’s safety card in their possession while afield.
- Youth: Applicants are required to be 14 years of age by the end of the year to apply for limited-entry and once-in-a-lifetime tags. Applicants are required to be 12 years of age to apply for general season deer tags.
