Spring black bear hunt applications due

Donny Martorello
Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife

OLYMPIA - Hunters may now purchase and submit applications for a 2013 spring black bear hunting permit, applicable to specific areas of western and eastern Washington.

To be eligible for a permit, hunters must purchase and submit an application to the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) by midnight Feb. 28.

A drawing will be held in mid-March for 383 permits in western Washington and 314 permits for hunts east of the Cascades. Permit winners will receive their permit in the mail by March 31. Applicants may also check the results of the drawing at wdfw.wa.gov/hunting on the WDFW website.

To apply for a permit, hunters must purchase a special permit application and a 2013 hunting license that includes bear as a species option. Hunting licenses, bear transport tags and bear permit applications may be purchased online at fishhunt.dfw.wa.gov, by calling (866) 246-9453, or at any license vendor in the state.

Special permit applications, which require a correct hunt choice number, may be submitted online at fishhunt.dfw.wa.gov or by calling (877) 945-3492.

Hunters interested in hunting on the Kapowsin Tree Farm should contact the tree farm before submitting an application to find out what areas are open. Those selected for the Kapowsin Tree Farm hunt must then purchase an access permit from Hancock Forest Management by calling (800) 782-1493.

Hunters selected for the Copalis hunt must obtain a Recreational Use Permit and should contact Tracie Lamb at Rayonier at 855-729-4868.

More information on hunts scheduled on both sides of the state is available on page 63 in the 2012 Big Game Hunting Rules pamphlet (wdfw.wa.gov/hunting/regulations).

Any legal weapon used during the modern firearm, archery or muzzleloader seasons can be used for spring black bear hunts. Bait or hounds are not allowed for bear hunting.
