If you get a Bull Tag, you can still get a Cow tag...I got a Bull tag last year, I just logged onto the State Site and can purchase a cow permit. The bull permit is gone from my choices...

Mine shows that 2 and I took a bull a couple years back. However it states only one moose may be taken in a lifetime. This is waived only for auction, raffle, master hunter or previous antlerless hunts. That's what I'm confused about is why can I still buy the antlerless hunt option? I don't want to buy it build points for 10 years and draw a tag only to have the game department tell me I cannot be issued the tag. Another option that it shows I'm able to buy and apply for is handicapped? Last time I checked I'm all good and healthy. I think the licensing may have a glitch or to in the game departments favor in the way of funds.

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,
masterhunter,
raffle or auction hunt permit.

There are no related exceptions below that I could see.

It has changed this year. It was in the proposals that were out before the reg's were finalized and it pretty clearly states that you can only kill 1 moose in your lifetime unless you've harvested an antlerless moose. See my post above.

Thats exactly the way I read it to. I was just checking to see if I was missing something or if anybody had any info we were not aware of. It's stated pretty clearly right there though looks like some of us are out a few points and a little money on the antlerless hunts!

if that's the case then WDFW owes us a refund.

So you are reading it as: If you have never harvested a moose and you drew a cow tag this year and filled your cow tag, then you can never harvest a bull? Is this the question you are asking?

I am reading it as saying....if you have killed a cow moose, you can keep applying. If you have killed a bull, you're all done. One and done.
