Members of the Washington National Guard and the Washington State Guard who meet state residency and other requirements can qualify for free hunting licenses under a new law that took effect in June.
A free license package is now available to active, full-time members of the National and State Guard, and to those who participate in drill training with these military units on a part-time basis.
Those interested in receiving the free licensing package must submit a printed application to WDFW along with: Verification of military service; a copy of their driver’s license; and a copy of their hunter education certificate. Full information is available at http://wdfw.wa.gov/licensing/national_guard/index.html.
