From Feb. 15 through March 27, the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife will be accepting written public comments on proposed rule changes to 2023-2024 hunting season regulations, according to a WDFW news release.

Rule alterations being proposed include changes to landowner hunting permits; deer and elk hunting special permits, seasons and areas; moose permit quotas; bighorn sheep and mountain goat permits; and hunting seasons and regulations for migratory game birds.

“We encourage everyone interested in the upcoming hunting seasons to review the proposed changes and send us your feedback,” said WDFW Game Division Manager Anis Aoude in the release.
