Moose Special Permits

Application Submission Period: April 26-midnight on May 26, 2021

  • These hunts are for special permit holders only. See Special Permit Application Instructions for instructions on how to apply.
  • You may purchase and submit up to five moose permit applications; one permit application per hunt category, for which you qualify, as listed in the following tables.
  • Only one moose may be taken per hunter during the hunting season.
  • Hunting licenses for mountain goat, moose, or bighorn sheep do not have to be purchased unless you are selected for a special hunt permit. If selected, you must send a check or money order for the appropriate fee, to WDFW's Headquarters office by the deadline established by the Department (15 day minimum) or the permit will become void and will be offered to an alternate. You may also purchase using a credit card by calling (866) 246-9453.
  • Hunters with permits to harvest antlerless moose are requested to refrain from taking cows with calves in their immediate vicinity. Some moose cows in Washington do not produce calves in all years, or may have already lost them by hunting season. WDFW requests that hunters with antlerless moose permits attempt to harvest these animals.

Who May Apply:

Antlered Bull Moose:

Anyone, except those who have previously harvested a moose in Washington State under an “Any Moose” permit. An individual may only harvest one moose under the “Antlered Bull Moose” category during his or her lifetime.

Antlerless Only Category:

Anyone may apply, every year, regardless of prior harvest(s).

Youth, Over-65, Disabled Categories:

Anyone may apply that meets the requirements for the particular category, every year, regardless of prior harvest(s).

Raffle & Auction permits:

Anyone may apply every year.

Hunt Choices:

Up to 4 hunt choices may be selected per category.

Submission of Moose Incisor Tooth

Hunters who are drawn for a moose permit will be provided a postage-paid envelope. Successful hunters are required to pull an incisor tooth within 60 days of harvest and return it to WDFW in the postage-paid envelope in order to determine the age of harvested moose. This will not only allow a hunter to know the age of their trophy moose, but will assist WDFW in sustainably managing moose populations in Washington. Hunters wanting to check the age of their harvested moose can visit the following website: https://wdfw.wa.gov/hunting/requirements/harvest-reporting/tooth-lookup. Results are typically available approximately 6 months after the hunting season.
