HM This is a damage hunt administered by a WDFW designated Hunt Master. Successful applicants will be contacted on an as-needed basis to help with specific sites of elk damage on designated landowner's property. Not all successful applicants will be contacted in any given year depending on elk damage activity for that year.

Hunter Education Instructor Incentive Permits

Special elk permits will be allocated through a random drawing to those hunter education instructors that qualify.

Permit hunters must use archery equipment during archery seasons, muzzleloader equipment during muzzleloader seasons, and any legal weapon during modern firearm seasons.

Qualifying hunter education instructors must be certified and have been in active status for a minimum of three consecutive years, inclusive of the year prior to the permit drawing.

Instructors who are drawn, accept a permit, and are able to participate in the hunt, will not be eligible for these incentive permits for a period of ten years thereafter.

Permittees may purchase a second license for use with the permit hunt only.
