Agency filings affecting this section

Damage prevention permit hunts.

DAMAGE PREVENTION PERMIT HUNTS
(1) Pursuant to RCW 77.12.150 and 77.12.260, a landowner with deer, elk, or turkey-caused property damage may enter into a Cooperative Agreement (contract) with WDFW, and thereby receive a damage prevention permit. The commission may establish a special season for these permits, as described by this rule.
The landowner agrees not to claim damage payments, except for Elk Areas 3721 and 3722, and will allow access to hunters during the general hunting seasons. Landowner selects hunters. A damage prevention permit provided to a landowner by WDFW and given to the hunter will authorize the hunter to use an unused general deer, elk, or turkey tag to hunt and kill a legal animal during the appropriate prescribed season.
(2) Landowners who violate this section will be punished under RCW 77.15.750(1). Hunters who violate this section will be punished under RCW 77.15.400 or 77.15.410, depending on the species hunted.
