Popular hunting seasons get underway this weekend


    Some of Washington’s most popular hunting seasons will get underway this Saturday, October 13th, when modern firearm deer hunters and waterfowl hunters take to the field.

    Home to some of the best mule deer hunting in the state, Chelan and Douglas County’s is a destination for many hunters. With its large public land base, the county offers almost unlimited opportunity to find a place of your own. Four of the state’s six high deer hunt wilderness areas are in Chelan County, as well as three bighorn sheep herds and an increasing mountain goat population.

    Hunters will also take to the field for waterfowl on Saturday which includes goose, coot and snipe. Last season, nearly 445,000 ducks were harvested in Washington. Hunters can purchase their licenses online or at any WDFW licensed dealers.
