I asked WDFW the question a few days ago.

Got this back:  Thank you for contacting the Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife.

There is a possibility that there won't be leftovers. Last year it was in August.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact us at 360.902.2464.

Thank You,

I believe people have till July 31 to buy them, then with elk, theyíll go down the line and call those peeps to see if they want them. Deer is different, maybe on sale aug 10th

MW, if you're not going to purchase the multi-season tag you drew, you will get your points back.  Just need to call WDFW and they'll work it for you over the phone.  It only took a day or two and my points came back (I can't take advantage of the MS elk tag I drew with other state successful draws getting priority).

Do you have to PURCHASE the multi season tag in order to apply for different weapon type special hunts? Or are people just waiting until special draws come out to actually purchase their multi?

Oh dang, I was just joking that is pretty silly. But I guess if they're going to allow it I might as well...

Hereís the response I got. Guess it just depends on who you deal with and whether any of them know what the heck is going on

Thank you for contacting the Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife.

 

Since the Multi-Season drawings are for a tag and not a permit, they do not qualify for the point restoration. Since the special hunt permits are not tags, they may be returned to the Wildlife Program, as those utilize the transport tags whether they are Multi-Season or General Season.

You have to purchase the multiseason tag before you can apply for different weapon type special hunts. Otherwise, you are limited to whatever tag you HAVE purchased, or if you have not yet purchased any tag, you can't apply for any hunts. I went through this the last couple years. Had to return my muzzleloader tag and purchase multiseason before other permit applications became available on my account.

Just called about availability of OTC MS tags not purchased before 31 Aug.  I was told that they would not be selling them OTC this year, but instead will be notifying the hunters that did not draw - giving them a chance to purchase the MS tag based on the number they drew during the original draw for tags.  Sounds like every applicant drew a number and then the original "selected" hunters had the opportunity to buy the tag up till the end of August.  Any remaining/unpurchased tags will be then made available (by email contact) based on each hunter's draw number, until all the tags are sold or there are no more hunters desiring to buy it.    :bdid:

The deadline was July 31.  I like the new (not new) way they are doing this, takes away the chit show of trying to buy an elk tag in .5 seconds.  I had 11 points and didnít draw an ms elk, I just have to hope Iím in line to get an email saying Iím next in line. Figure all the elk ms tags will be gone by next week.

I guess I'm the odd one here. Normally hunt archery east, but boughtnew property on the Westside with an elk herd that wanders through occasionally. Hoping for any elk on the east side with my bow or a 3x or better in the Satsop unit.

I am 100% for WDFW charging up front the full cost for the multi season tags when you buy the permit application and if not drawn you get refunded the tag cost. Weeds out everyone who isn't really serious about wanting a multi season tag. I'm talking about the same couple thousand guys who don't buy their tags every year they're drawn... Other states do this with certain tags and it works great for the guys who are serious about it.

I personally spoke to them and they acknowledged that is what is published. Last week they were testing the system and there is a malfunction. They could not get the system  to stop selling tags when the remaining number of available tags was up. The decision was made last week after not being able to resolve it that they would have to release the tags to the next in line. They will take all the X number of remaining tags and offer them to the next X number of remaining people. Those people have 1 week to buy. Then the next X number of remaining tags to the next X number of people in line. They intend to do this every week of the deer seasons until all tags are sold.

What a joke, I'm currently waiting to make plans for if I get multi or not relating to time off and elk season.. was planning on walking in, hopefully buying multi tag and requesting time off.. now I'm waiting weeks on end to choose between muzzy or modern for blackies. In fact this makes no sense there going to wait through archery to determine you have now been given the opportunity to buy multi tags.. sounds fishy

As I mentioned, I spoke with WDFW at length on this. My primary concern was they published one process and changed to another after the special permit draw. I, like many others, based my entire deer special permit application strategy on what they had published and knowing that if  I was in line on time, thereís was nearly a 100% chance I could buy a leftover multiseason deer tag OTC. I have a pretty premier summer buck spot that I ďpayĒ for with immense tractor work and other help through the year. I have been hunting for years on this spot with a Sep archery tag and Iíve already done the brush work with the tractor, set the blind up, etcÖ Iíve hunted this spot long enough to know that after about the 3rd week in September all the bucks disappear. This year I bought and applied for rifle special hunts in dream units after not getting drawn for a multiseason deer tag because I knew I could buy one if I got in line early. To change it after the draw feels like a bait and switch. I would have bought archery if they had tested their system, discovered this problem earlier, and announced the change earlier. Now they are saying it may be after the archery season is over before they sell all the multiseason tags based on the process I layer out in an earlier post. Pretty ticked by this.

I'm in the same boat - didnt draw multi season and went with modern rifle to try and cash in some points. Didnt draw anything and in setting up game cams this year for elk, stumbled into a stomper blacktail that I now cant get a tag for unless my number is called. He'll be gone before september even ends...

Now they are saying it may be after the archery season is over before they sell all the multiseason tags based on the process I layer out in an earlier post. Pretty ticked by this.

Go to a dealer and swap your tag.  You just have to do it before the season starts.

You can't swap tags if you applied for special permits.

Im for paying for it up front and they also dont need to give people almost 4 months to buy the dumb permit. Give them a month to purchase after the last day to submit permits and this could all happen months earlier.

Agreed. This is insane. How many times will they have to draw to sell out the tags? Seems like it could be into hunting season. Then at that point how many people would even want it? I would happily pay up front and let the state collect the interest while they hold my money.

125 surplus elk, 2,413 deer multi-season tags awarded this month
OLYMPIA — Hunters who bought a multi-season permit application for elk or deer earlier this year, but were not selected in the April drawing, may be one of the additional  people who will be selected for surplus elk or deer multi-season tags.
Unlike past years, deer tags will be offered to the next in line hunters, instead of being sold over-the-counter.
“Just like last year, we’ll offer eligible hunters a leftover multi-season elk tag by selecting hunters sequentially from the April draw list, and we will use the same process for deer this year," said Peter Vernie, Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) licensing division manager.
The remaining 125 elk and 2,413 deer multi-season tag winners will receive an email from WDFW notifying them that they are eligible to buy a multi-season elk tag. Hunters will have 10 days to buy a tag if they are selected. Hunters can buy licenses online, at an authorized WDFW license dealer, or at a WDFW regional office or headquarters in Olympia.
"Because winners will be notified by email, we advise you to make sure your email address is correct in the WILD System," added Vernie.
Multi-season deer tags are $139.10, and multi-season elk tags are $182. Tag costs are the same for residents and non-residents. There is no purchase deadline for elk or deer multi-season tags.
Hunters who purchase a second-chance multi-season tag do not use points in their multi-season deer or elk special hunt application categories.
Hunters with multi-season tags can hunt all three weapon choices (modern firearm, muzzleloader, archery), season permitting.
WDFW works to preserve, protect and perpetuate fish, wildlife and ecosystems while providing sustainable fish and wildlife recreational and commercial opportunities.

The delay in releasing these tags is very frustrating.   People plan vacation time around these tags and not knowing is a....challenge.  I am assuming they haven't released the first batch as no one has shared that they received an email yet.

In the email the sent me,

The existing official Multi-season draw list is being used to select those who will get the chance to buy the remaining tags in order to prevent large gatherings at retail locations.   

It doesn't mention anything about going back on sale in 10 days either

With the gas prices so high I highly recommend about 2400 of you skip the multi season so I can get one.

Worst case scenario I will be the camera man for my hunting buddies.  Capturing their "almost got a shot" moments should be fun.

I put in for both deer and elk MS tags, got drawn for deer and bought it, did not get drawn for elk, did get drawn for an elk quality tag so if drawn the second time around for elk MS, I wouldn't buy it. Mostly because I don't know how I would explain to my wife I need to drop another $180, been a speedy last couple months.

Just logged into me teenage son's account, he got a MS leftover tag. He's stoked, plans to bowhunt deer in September for the 1st time.  The MS tag is a clunky system, pre-paid tag/apps would be a better way to do it but the refund process would be a PIA. People's credit card accounts expire, and post mailing checks requires a lot of labor and postage. USPS loses checks, people think its junk mail when a refund is sent, etc. etc. I work in the outfitting business and refund checks never go as smooth as you wish it would. I can see users being more frustrated trying to get their $139 back haha.   :chuckle:

I like the idea of the new system having a "2nd round" of winning applicants but they have some things to improve for sure.

Not yet, just logged in. There is no option to purchase online. My biggest frustration with the entire system is for those of us that chose our weapon type before the draw - it requires you to go down and forfeit your existing tag. It's been super frustrating as the clerk typically has no idea what to do. They often call Olympia and sort it out. I wish you could just buy it online, and agree to destroy your existing tag.

As I mentioned, I spoke with WDFW at length on this. My primary concern was they published one process and changed to another after the special permit draw. I, like many others, based my entire deer special permit application strategy on what they had published and knowing that if  I was in line on time, thereís was nearly a 100% chance I could buy a leftover multiseason deer tag OTC. I have a pretty premier summer buck spot that I ďpayĒ for with immense tractor work and other help through the year. I have been hunting for years on this spot with a Sep archery tag and Iíve already done the brush work with the tractor, set the blind up, etcÖ Iíve hunted this spot long enough to know that after about the 3rd week in September all the bucks disappear. This year I bought and applied for rifle special hunts in dream units after not getting drawn for a multiseason deer tag because I knew I could buy one if I got in line early. To change it after the draw feels like a bait and switch. I would have bought archery if they had tested their system, discovered this problem earlier, and announced the change earlier. Now they are saying it may be after the archery season is over before they sell all the multiseason tags based on the process I layer out in an earlier post. Pretty ticked by this.

This is ridiculous and I don't see how it's legal. Like you, this significantly impacts my plans and I've invested time and money. Anyone know a good lawyer? This is a BIG deal and needs to be rectified.

To say they are "trying to get is done by Sept. 1" is disrespectful to the public they are paid to assist.  I can't believe there is a justifiable reason why they won't be able to release the second list  prior to 9/1.  It can't be that complex...I really dislike being negative but this is bringing it out...

I talked to someone who said they are trying to get 2nd notice done by Sept. 1st.  Not sure if that's possible?  They could start notifying 2nd runner ups as soon as 1st choice declines.  No draw involved.  They already have the list of names in order.   :dunno:

I don't think this end is the problem.  I think too much time is given to purchase at the front end.  You either buy it or you don't.   Expecting to make vacation plans on a MS 2nd round is a bit of a stretch.

Run multi-season in January (or even December), they would get more money as people haven't spent it in other states.  Then, run the regular permit draw later and people will still apply since they would look to upgrade or other species.

It's not hard to figure this stuff out if someone is so inclined.  People want to hunt, they need to plan vacations, hotels, etc.  It's not rocket science.  Still farting around with a draw 3 weeks before the season starts does not help hunters.

Agree 100%. No reason the deadline to buy should be run all the way out to July 31st. Especially if theyíre going to drag their feet like this distributing the leftovers.

I would for sure support a change. Either pay up front or give you two weeks to buy it before your name gets scratched and it's offered to the next guy in line.

So the people who were drawn and then chose not to buy it and then turned around and bought it. That way do they retain their points?

If you got drawn the first time around then you lost your points anyway then you have until July 31st to buy it, if you dont buy it by then then you are out for good until next year.

I was selected for multi season deer second chance. When I log in to buy online I can't add to cart and is saying I need to supply hunters education certification. it appears it says that for any hunt related items I could still purchase. I did the class a long time ago, why is it telling me this now? website problems? anyone else having this problem? I'll swing by a sportsman's warehouse tomorrow and purchase in store. hopefully don't have to try and find hunters ed certificate from 30 years ago...

My brother and I both had this problem. A quick call to the wdfw fixed it.  They had a glitch that erased the date on your certificate. They just need to put a date back into the system. The dealer can do it also but some don't want to.

Agree with you 100% but you know they don't really care about hunting.  Too worried about saving the Orcas and salmon recovery which they are failing at. We all know how this state is failing with hunting and conservation. Issue is the wrong people are in charge.
 There are some good opportunities out there that do not require special permits.  A guy just has to get out there and figure it out, but the folks in charge making decisions are not helping.  Not complaining or being negative, just facts.

Instead of having to turn in your tag to buy the MS tag (which is very confusing for vendors...heck, when my son and I went to switch out his the store had to call "WDFW" to cancel the tag, but it wasn't WDFW but Outdoor Central instead and the lady on the phone asked to talk to my son to confirm his account...He tried answering her questions but things like phone and email asociated with his account, were my contacs as I created his account when he was 9...I grabbed the phone and told the lady that she was asking questions to a juvenile and I didnt appreciate it. She then asked me the same questions and I started asking her why she needed to "confirm his account" if he provided his tag to the vendor who called her, as it has his WILD ID on it and she can see he was drawn/selected the MS tag...she then released his original tag so we could buy the MS one...imagine if he was still 9!)...instead just pay the MS fee and print out the authorization just like the special permits and carry it with you...when checked by a Game Warden they can confirm the MS tag with the WILD ID...who cares if it says archery on it if its valid for MS....or better yet, make it a stamp like Idaho. Just buy a deer tag and pick the appropriate stamp for the season, then if drawn for MS you can purchase the MS stamp and the tag remains valid/the same...

Post by: bobcat on August 18, 2022, 09:12:19 PM
Yeah I agree with Grade. It's a very cumbersome way to do it. No reason one tag should have to be turned in and replaced with another one. Just have it show up on the hunting license (which is basically just a receipt) that the person paid for the Multi season option.

I vote we go back to the days when a deer/elk tag in your pocket meant you could harvest a deer or elk with any weapon you chose to hunt with during the seasons.
Title: Re: multi season tags
Post by: blackveltbowhunter on August 19, 2022, 07:29:30 AM
I agree the tag turning in has always seemed a hassle. I have never had to do it, but have heard enough horror stories.  Its already complicated enough paying for a tag in the big game combo then not actually picking it up till you recieve multi results later.

It seems they could easily resolve it all by making the multi draw the price of the tag, and you get it or a refund.  OR make it an OTC option with the 6.00 increase for the app fee. The numbers are high enough, IMO its already oversaturated to begin with. It would eliminate all the second draw and last minute hassle. If you want to spend money and buy it go ahead,  if you want to save money that option is still available.

They should really do the multi season draw in the spring and redraw before the general season long before people all ready purchase a tag.

Why not just educate them and tell them hey Iím suppose to forfeit the old tag , so I doesnít keep happening and people arenít tempted to ya know do the wrong thing , Iím sure itís a big part of why f&g have made system such a pain since some people are keeping both tags purposely or not still not helping

Oh really??? No, I donít have a multiseason elk tag. So they called a third time and finally got a real answer. Thatís when I learned I canít exchange my tag because I applied for special hunts (was not drawn) which really ticked me off.

my opinion is if you had to pay up front for it ( and any other special draw) that would cut half the people out from the get go . And the timing allowed to purchase is crazy long and people put it it off until the last minute to purchase or forget

Its always been that way, if you apply for special permits for one weapon then you cant exchange it for another weapon if you werent drawn. H3ll, everyone would be doing that.

Yes, I agree and I learned it's historically been that way unless you apply for points only. 

My issues with this instance is that the more than once, the W&F person on the phone told Bass Pro that I couldn't exchange because "he has a multiseason elk tag"....which I did not get selected for. Also the rules of having to make these choices months in advance leaves no room for major schedule changes in the future. Especially having paid up front for the applications.

In my mind it goes down like this:
Didn't get drawn? No problem.
Oh look, a business opportunity that takes up half the general archery season...let me go exchange for modern. Oh..I paid to apply for special hunts, didn't get drawn, and can't exchange? To me that's bad business. It's no fault of theirs that I have schedule change and WF doesn't loose revenue if I exchange a tag.  The person at W&F that I spoke with said, "you applied for special hunts. we consider that use of the tag."

I'll buy one up until opening day of archery elk.  But their hesitation is driving me nuts!  They know the number of tags left and they already have a list.  The next batch of people could've been notified by noon on Monday.  And they could have gotten 2 rounds of notifications in by 9/1 if they gave the people 7 days to purchase.  How their incompetence continues to exponentially increase blows my mind.

I drew with 11 points last year for multi elk.

My multiseason deer application status was just changed from "not selected" to "selected".  Yay for me.  I haven't received any email yet (and I did check my spam folder).  What's the process now?  There's no way to buy it online.  Do I have to go to a vendor in person and turn in my existing tag? 

This process (if there is one) is crazy.

I'm sure WDFW may have screwed their directions up again, but this is an excerpt from the "news update" WDFW posted regarding extra multi-season tags....  I would log on and see if I could buy my tag.

"The remaining 125 elk and 2,413 deer multi-season tag winners will receive an email from WDFW notifying them that they are eligible to buy a multi-season elk tag. Hunters can buy licenses online, at an authorized WDFW license dealer, or at a WDFW regional office or headquarters in Olympia."

Approximately half of the tags were issued on the 1st leftover drawing. So if this trend continues I would say there will be about 600-700 tags leftover after the second round. Maybe more since the archery season will have already started at that point and people will have made other plans. 10 days to buy your tag is 5 days too long in my opinion. This process is painfully slow and obviously there was little thought put into this with the limited time left before the opener. Par for the course when it comes to dealing with WDFW.

I agree 100%.  There should have been a new notification every Monday until they were gone.  We should be several rounds into this instead of 2.

The store clerk has to call the WDFW license agent to clear the tag for sale if you already have a different tag. They will be confused and try to do it themselves. Tell them right from the get go they have to call or it wonít work. Save yourself some hassle.

So....I'm very glad to finally be eligible to purchase.  Went to store to purchase this morning (Saturday).  The store called and were told that they cannot override my modern tag.  Tried to escalate to a supervisor who confirmed only WDFW can cancel that tag during normal business hours.  Looks like I need to wait until Monday.  There could be some frustrated people who wait until next weekend.

Hunters who bought a multi-season permit application for elk or deer earlier this year, but were not selected in the last drawing, may be one of the additional people selected for surplus elk or deer multi-season tags. Hunters will be notified this week via email.
If youíre notified that you can buy one of the remaining multi-season tags, you have 10 days from the day of the email was sent to buy your tag. Make sure you pay attention to the expiration date.

I don't really know where to post this so I thought I would just use this thread.  My two daughters are on our first joint archery hunt together.  We have come close to multiple big bucks which is a blast.  They love the stalks. 

The reason I'm posting is one of my daughter's comments.  The reason hunting with girls is just different and special.

She said "Dad quit wasting your wind directional powder. Just watch our hair." I've been doing that and she is right...I'm sure it isn't perfect for wind direction but still hit my funny bone.  The two of them aren't very good at spitting deer until around 6:30 am.

On a side note....I'm seeing about ten percent of the whitetail compared to last year.  Mule deer also seem lower.

It's just as bad for fishing. Not sure if you all are paying attention to what's happening in the Columbia River but currently the commercial and tribal fleet are allowed to fish while the sportsman is not. Best run in years and WDFW won't even consider allowing line casted fishing until the 18th.
Guess my point is just that our multiple season deer tags isn't the only area they are failing in.

I have read back a few pages to see if everyone knows whatís going on as of right now !??  They are drawing Multi Tags every 10 days ! If they notify you , you can go buy one ! And they are drawing until they are gone even while the seasons are going on !


Thanks for the update! :tup:

Not enough left, I think I was like 19000 out of 21000 in order.  :chuckle:
 I really only want the tag for late season archery, so who knows they may give up and let me buy one eventually.

I got my email yesterday.   If only I could have got it one week later so I could finish early muzzleloader.  Not sure if I want it anymore. 

If I buy it does it take my points away?

Approximately half of the tags were issued on the 1st leftover drawing. So if this trend continues I would say there will be about 600-700 tags leftover after the second round. Maybe more since the archery season will have already started at that point and people will have made other plans. 10 days to buy your tag is 5 days too long in my opinion. This process is painfully slow and obviously there was little thought put into this with the limited time left before the opener. Par for the course when it comes to dealing with WDFW.
So by my math if this trend continues I figure it will take about 11 more rounds to sell out of the MS deer tags, give or take not taking into account the human factor. This will take us out into about the first week of January. Good job WDFW.

 :yeah: I have 14 points for MS elk and cant even get a tag on the 3rd or whatever offering they are on now. So it makes me wonder what those weighted points actually get you since I am literally the only person who has never drawn the tag that has put in ever year since they started offering MS.

Buddy of mine drew MS elk but heís not going to buy it since weíre 5 days into the season and he had no way to plan. So thereís one more tag up for grabs.

Do they intentionally not want to sell all of them? Is that how bad the hunting is out there now? I understand that money is their top priority, but maybe it's that bad? It's hard to believe that an organization can be this incompetent and that it's not actually intentional at this point.

Not that hard to believe.  Hunting access controlled by the liberal left..(?)..  They don't care about money.  Consider the US House of Representatives..  Not having money in the coffers is no reason to not spend much, much more than funding allows.  .

This is the first year in the 13 that I've been hunting that I didn't get a MS deer tag.  All one can do is complain the the Director of WDFW.  Knowing these liberals though, I wouldn't expect much response.  They have you in their control and will be hard-pressed to let go of those reins. 

All in all though, it doesn't much matter.  My son passed his Hunter Ed Course and Field Trials last week.  I hit four stores in my area today in an attempt to put all of our gear together prior to the first hunt.  I'm sure you all knew it, but I was surprised to find that here's absolutely no ammo available in the caliber rifles I own.  Even online, prices are 3X what they should be and when I tried to check with one of those price gouged options in my shopping cart, I found that these online merchants no longer ship to WA.   I guess we'll throw rocks and sticks at the bucks this year.  Freeking amazing.

Just updated today...FYI...as I am finally "selected" for deer. At this point I wasn't going to buy it, BUT like the idea of some of the late hunts (I already have the muzzy tag) and the possibility of going out with my 75 year old Dad during rifle season or the late buck rifle weekend...and since it doesn't affect points I will buy it.

Iím tempted to call WDFW and ask for a prorated price, although I know the answer to that question.  Iíll hunt this week, if I donít seal the deal Iíll probably be a sucker and make the purchase in order to extend my hunting season as long as possible.

Friend called on last draw . They stated sales were done and yes they didnít sell out for deer and that next year no idea how they would do it due to all the kinks they had

Sounds like anyway they did it in previous years would be better than the way they did it this year and left money sitting on the table and hunters on their couches

agreed, There are some of us that buy it mostly to extend seasons when needed and might still buy it.

I've said it a million times and I'll say it a million more, charge the full tag cost up front when applying and no refunds if drawn. They sell all their tags, no one has to mess around with trying to buy a leftover OTC in August, they avoid this whole debacle they've put themselves in this year and it will weed out those not serious about wanting the tag and the guys who really want it will be rewarded. Problem solved 100%.

Absolute ridiculous mismanagement of our natural resources. WDFW literally took meat out of my freezer this year. Food off of my table!
I cannot believe they are going to quit selling tags prior to the end of the season. The best hunting is yet to come.

I know I'll get flamed for this ,maybe banned.
Washington State hunting would be a lot better without
A multiseason.
Simply just the state selling off resources till there is none.
We would be better off without it.
Tell me I'm wrong
Flame away..... :chuckle: :chuckle:

They took meat out of your freezer ? How ? You bought the tag you saw fit to begin with correct ? Is that there fault .multi season is not guaranteed. I mean just stating you chose a season no need to rely on that make your season the best you can period

I agree
Even a reduction would help.
I also agree with paying up front when you put into draw.
No tire kicking.
No late handouts,you draw that's great.
No leftovers.

For sure on the pay up front !!! And I can also say I absolutely hate they let people return tags now I think unless unit was closed down  then thatís your draw ! Shoot there are lots of issues with the whole system but we all know that

I bought the tag I was forced to purchase once I put in for special hunts. Had I known that I wouldnít have a multiple season tag I would have NOT put in for rifle hunts and would have had an archery deer tag.

Meat out of my freezer was the 3 legal buck encounters I had during archery elk season.

They changed the rules mid game! Multiple season tags were a guarantee. Iím the guy who beat you to the front of the line the day they went for sale over the counter. Happily take a day off work to guarantee my time in the woods.
Thatís just me. I donít expect many to understand.

Sounds to me like   You made the choice on your own .nobody forced you too do anything, and not guaranteed they have sold out before . Better luck next time

They "literally" took meat out of your freezer? They came to your home, went to the freezer, and removed meat you had there? Confiscated it? Wow, is there a process or appeal to get it back? :dunno:

What's even better than this?  The main archery season and the main muzzleloader season have passed, and rifle elk is on right now.  I just got the e-mail from DFW, that "I am eligible to buy the multi-season tag."

Actually, no, I am NOT eligible.  The option is not even available on the Fish/Hunt website.

No, thank you anyway, but very kind to offer.

I have a muzzle tag for deer, the rep I talked to in the phone said I'd receive my multi deer tag in 7-14 days and can't hunt till then, so no way to hunt the rest of late rifle deer. Hella frustrating.

I'm not positive but isn't it possible to go to a license dealer and switch out tags (GEN to MSeason)?

Post by: Moe the Sleaze on November 08, 2022, 05:28:31 PM
Iíll call them tomorrow if i get a minute. Iím currently hunting late modern, and would like to hunt late muzzy if Iím unsuccessful. If they allow over-the counter exchanges, I may drop into town to do it. But I dont want to lose any late modern waiting on the mail.

Not at all happy with the situation, I left all my muzzy gear at home because I had basically given up. Long drive back to get it. I should have known!

Post by: dub870 on November 08, 2022, 05:57:34 PM
I got the multitag recently. You take your current deer tag to a dealer. They call a number and cancel your current tag. You then pay full price for the multitag and walk out with it.
