OLYMPIA — The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) is seeking public comments on proposed recommendations for 2020-2021 hunting seasons, according to a press release.

Between Feb. 6 – Feb. 26, WDFW will accept written public comments to help finalize hunting rules and regulations proposed for the upcoming year. The proposals and comment forms will be posted on the department’s website at

Most proposals address 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.

More substantial proposals, including several options related to cougar season setting, are also under consideration during the process.

“We encourage everyone interested in the upcoming hunting seasons to check the proposed changes and send us your comments,” Anis Aoude, WDFW game division manager, said.

The commission, which sets policy for WDFW, will also accept public comments on the proposed recommendations at its March 13 –14 meeting in Kennewick.

Final action by the Commission is scheduled at a public meeting April 10 – 11 in Olympia.

WDFW is the primary state agency tasked with preserving, protecting, and perpetuating fish, wildlife, and ecosystems while providing sustainable fishing and hunting opportunities.
