Vashon unit is the only unit open for a "any" weapon 2nd deer tag from August through December. So if you were drawn for that tag you can hunt that time frame with the weapon on your general deer tag. Not all 2nd deer tags are August through December. For example desert 2nd deer tag for modern is December 10-25
Kahlotus 2nd deer tag for modern Is December 9-17. So if you don't have a vashon tag you might wanna check the dates for the tag you drew

Per the game department..."your 2nd tag must be the same weapon as your first tag, which means you are limited to archery, but able to hunt with that 2nd tag anytime between Aug 1st- Dec 31st until you fill that 2nd deer tag for that area"


The first tag being the one you were required to purchase when you applied for second deer. You had picked a weapon to apply for second deer and only later did you find out that you won multi-season.

It wouldn't make sense to allow any weapon for a weapon restricted second deer tag. Some of those GMUs are restricted for a reason. For example they might want to reduce the deer population but without using centerfire rifles. There are also second deer tags where one weapon is a lot harder to obtain than another. Well multi-season deer isn't that difficult to get so you would be bypassing the system.

the question of this thread is because he drew a second deer tag that any tag holder could apply for. It wasn’t weapon specific like most are.

Probably gonna get told what an idiot I am for suggesting anyone talk to WDFW, but feel free to give them a call. 360-902-2200 . Follow the phone prompts to talk with hunt licensing folks. They have answers. I've done it multiple times.

True but he still applied for second deer with archery so the second tag will probably be for archery. I'm sure it is a separate system. You trade in your main archery tag for multi but that doesn't change your second tag. If you were allowed to switch your second tag to multi it would screw up the system. I can see arguing for an exemption for "any" areas but I doubt there is one.
