Master Hunter applications sought

Applications for the Washington Department of Fish &Wildlife’s Master Hunter Permit Program will be accepted from Jan. 1 through Feb. 15, 2014.

The program is designed to promote safe, lawful and ethical hunting and to strengthen the state’s hunting heritage and conservation ethic.

Hunters enrolled in the program must pay a $50 application fee, pass a criminal background check and a written test, demonstrate shooting proficiency, provide at least 20 hours of approved volunteer service and meet other qualifications listed on the Fish &Wildlife website.

The department enlists these hunters for controlled hunts for problem animals that damage property. They also participate in volunteer projects involving increasing access to private lands, habitat enhancement, data collection, hunter education and landowner relations.
