The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife is preparing to make things easier for the avid outdoors person by combining some of the most common licenses.
The Washington Fish and Wildlife Commission is scheduled to take action on a new combination fishing and hunting license at its September meeting in Winthrop this Friday and Saturday.
WDFW is proposing to create a new Get Outdoors license for state residents that would include freshwater, saltwater, and shellfish licenses with two-pole endorsement with Puget Sound crab endorsement along with hunting licenses for deer, elk, bear, and cougar, small game, migratory bird permit and turkey tags.
If approved, the new license would cost $235.18 including fees, and would be available for purchase beginning Dec. 1 for the 2020 license year, which runs April 1, 2020 through March 31, 2021.
The Commission will live stream both meetings on their website; click here to find the link.
