I am pretty sure you do but not 100%. I am sure someone will chime in soon.

You need a license and tag to apply for any special deer or elk permit. You don't for the OIL permits.
Nature. It's cheaper than therapy.

You sure do. Have to buy early to get a point.

Get your elk license, tag, and special permit application now. Submit the application for the point option. In July or August, if you decide you want to hunt a different method than the tag you purchased, go to a license dealer and exchange it for the one you want. You're allowed to do that if you only apply for a point.

Can you do that if you applied for a hunt but didn't get it the special hunt and want to switch sides of the mountain?  I am applying for a special hunt on east side but if I don't get it I want to hunt the west side general season.  Anyone know if you can do that?
I know I've lost it, let me know if you come across it

http://wdfw.wa.gov/help/questions/40/I+bought+an+eastern+Washington+archery+elk+license+and+applied+for+an+elk+special+permit.+Since+I+was+not+drawn%2C+can+I+change+from+archery+to+muzzleloader+or+from+eastern+to+western+Washington%3F

I bought an eastern Washington archery elk license and applied for an elk special permit. Since I was not drawn, can I change from archery to muzzleloader or from eastern to western Washington?

You cannot switch your elk or deer tag after the special permit submission deadline date if you submitted hunt choices for a special permit. You cannot switch from eastern to western (or western to eastern) once the special permit submission deadline has passed. You can only exchange your tag if you make the request before the special permit submission deadline.

If you submitted Points Option or did not apply for special permits, you can exchange your tag before the following deadlines:

- Archery tag holder – September 1
- Muzzleloader tag holder – September 20
- Modern Firearm tag holder– October 10
