Hunting seasons in final days

While the pheasant, quail and partridge seasons closed last Sunday, Jan. 21, a few seasons remain open. Read on.

Duck, coot, snipe and goose seasons end Sunday, Jan. 27. Regularly the goose hunting is allowed only on Saturday, Sunday and Wednesdays, but goose hunting is allowed every day from Jan. 21 and Jan. 27. The daily limit for geese is four Canadian, 10 white-fronted and six white-geese. This equates to 20 geese a day, if a hunter was so lucky.

Cotton tail and snowshoe rabbit seasons continue through March 15, with a limit of five a day, mixed bag.

The falconry season is still open for turkey, through Feb. 15, with a limit of one, either sex turkey per tag and a maximum of two turkeys per season.

Comments of hunting seasons proposals wanted

Fish and wildlife will be looking for public comments on proposed recommendations for the 2019 and 2020 hunting seasons. The proposals are now available to view, as of Jan. 23.

The proposed seasons will be discussed in this space in future weeks. Comments will be accepted by Fish and Wildlife until midnight, Pacific time on Feb. 13.

Fish and Wildlife indicates most of the proposals concern minor changes in special permit levels and hunting area descriptions proposed since the Washington Fish and Wildlife Commission approved the state’s latest three-year hunting package in 2018.
