Antlerless moose tags?
« on: April 23, 2013, 08:34:27 AM »
So i know we hashed this out before but just wanted to make sure im not missing something before I buy my permits. Is everybody reading the antlerless permits the same as me? no applying for them now if you have taken a bull moose in this state even though we could in previous years?

I'm not seeing that. Why don't you log in to your WILD ID profile and see if the antlerless moose application is available to purchase. If it's there I would think you're eligible.

Here's the text from the regulations: 

Who May Apply: Anyone may apply, except those who have previously harvested a moose in Washington state (for exceptions,see below) An individual may only harvest one moose during his or her lifetime However,this restriction is waived for hunters who have previously harvested a moose under an antlerless-only, master- hunter, raffle or auction hunt permit.

There are no related exceptions below that I could see.

The way I read that if you have killed a bull on a regular permit you are done. And that makes good sense to me.
If it aint broke, dont fix it.

But if you've killed a cow 1st, you are not done?

Thats what I read.

Not sure where the logic is in that. Maybe I'll start applying for cow permits and ghost point the bull till I have a whole bunch of points. Hopefully I can pull a cow tag 1st, That way I can shoot 2.

Personally I wouldn't even waste the money on antlerless moose permits. The odds of drawing are so low I just won't apply for those hunts anymore. I used to apply for antlerless moose hunts before they put them in a separate category. Your odds of drawing a bull moose permit are much better.

My dad drew an antlerless moose tag seven years ago, and I still put him in for the bull moose tag every year.

This is how I read it also. I took a bull in 2009. They let people that previously harvested a bull apply for antlerless tags the 3 years after that and it looks like they are putting an end to that this year if I read it right. I did check my wild I'd profile and antlerless moose is an option I can purchase but so is handicapped moose?

That's weird. It sounds like if you draw a soecial permit cow tag you are done as well. Because it says wavied for raffle auction and master hunters. Nothing about special cow tags being waived.

I see it just did not say special permit and I looked at it like antlerless only: master hunt/raffle/auction. I see what they are meaning now.
