I am wondering if anyone else has ran into the same issue as us. My boyfriend received his tag along with someone elses tag. I received a report letter, but no elk tag.
When I called WDFW they stressed the timeline for mailing but didn't have much concern about others personal info being given out along with the fact we now have someone else's tag.
Maybe it was a fluke and we were the only ones it happened to but, I find that unlikely.

Hasn't happened yet.  I anticipate it happening in mid-June after the draws though.  Undoubtedly my quality bull permit will be mailed to the wrong person  :P

good luck with it.  worst case you can get a duplicate printed.

I haven’t been mailed anyone else’s stuff before but have been mailed my own twice. Two envelopes delivered the same day each envelope contained all the stuff I bought. I called wdfw to let them know and find out how I could send the duplicate back and they were adamant that I did something to cause it and it was my fault.

I have been missing stuff as well as duplicates but never had anyone else's.  I have no idea why it is so difficult to get what you order in an envelope.  Online is so much easier than trying to explain the million things I buy to the guy at the store.

I always do my tag buying on line, always wait to pick my weapon and side for elk till after the Hancock drawing.  This year they went ahead and picked my weapon and side for me, it was wrong so I had to take the tag in and exchange it on my time/dime. Not sure how these screw ups happen?

My dad went to buy his hunting and fishing license a few years ago and they wouldnt sell it to him cause he had already bought it and hadnt reported his crab punch card report. Well my dad lives in eastern washington and has never been crabbing in his life. Come to find out they had sold all his stuff to a guy on the west side. To me thats a major screw up that really could off screwed up my dad. Luckily they were able to contact the guy and make him come turn it all in and got it taken care of quickly

A few years ago I applied and was drawn for two doe/fawn antelope licenses in Montana. After the drawing I received the two licenses in the mail, along with a required $10 Conservation License.

A week later I received another mailing from Montana, which contained two more antelope licenses and another Conservation License. I called the Montana FWP and explained that I had received two licenses by mistake. They checked their records and told me “No, you are only allowed two licenses, not four.” I told them that I was aware of that, but had accidentally received two additional licenses by mistake. “No, that can’t be – our records indicate that you are only allowed to have two.” I finally gave up on convincing them of their error.

As I was concluding the call, I informed the Montana FWP lady that I’d also received an extra Conservation License and would be glad to destroy it. She warned me not to do it: if I got two I had to send one back to Montana to get a refund or their records might show that I had two which is illegal. I asked her what would happen if I just tore it up, and she told me I’d probably be arrested when I got to Montana. Not wanting that, I stuck it in an envelope and mailed it back.

A few weeks later I got a $10 refund check mailed to me from Montana. Enclosed in the envelope was another Conservation License.

Sucks that happened to you. Doesn’t surprise me one bit though!

Little known fact:

Not sure if it's still the case but as of a couple years ago WDFW didn't actually send out the licenses. It was the license vendor company who sent them out using WDFW envelopes.

So you’re trying to say this isn’t WDFW’s problem?
