Heck yeah, great way to do it.  Furthermore, I hope they continue with that list when/if the 115 tags don't sell out completely.

I basically like this new approach also, but I guess I'll never purchase a left over Multi Elk four years in a row as I once did.  That said, this does create an issue for some hunters, myself included.  Since I didn't draw the Multi tag this year, I then went on and put in for my draws.  I drew a "team" Modern Firearm Antlerless Elk" tag.  Great news for me, but now I have an issue.  I sure as heck don't want to draw that multi tag now and burn all my points up. 

So, I just got off the phone with WDFW, "Dan" was a nice fella, and he put a ticket in on my profile so that if I am one of the 115 that get notified I can call back with my ticket number and resolve it after the fact.  Hope that wouldn't "burn" a tag for someone, but I don't want to "burn two tags" on me in one year.

Make people front the money before the draw would fix the whole process of left over elk tags.

I like the way they are dealing with the 115 remaining multi season elk permits. That's the way it should have always been done. I guess the China virus is good for something.
:yeah:
I'm probably number 116 anyway...

How fast will the 2000 ish deer tags sell out? And what if you surrender your current tag and arenít able to get multi season? Iíve never done this in the past..

Just got this letter from WDFW

WDFW NEWS RELEASE
Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife
1111 Washington St. SE, Olympia, WA 98501
https://wdfw.wa.gov

August 13, 2020
Contact: Sam Montgomery, 360-688-0721

115 surplus elk multi-season tags awarded; 2,723 over-the-counter deer tags available on Aug. 18

OLYMPIA ó Hunters who bought a multi-season permit application for elk earlier this year, but were not selected in the April drawing, may be one of the additional 115 people who will be selected for surplus elk multi-season tags.

In past years, hunters would camp out and form lines for the opportunity to secure this coveted elk permit. Given the risk of COVID-19, the department is releasing the tags differently this year.

"The next sequential 115 hunters on the original official draw list of elk multi-season tags will have an opportunity to buy the remaining tags," said Peter Vernie, WDFW Licensing Division Manager. "By using the existing official draw list from April, this prevents large group gatherings at retail locations and keeps the opportunity fair."

Elk hunters can also login on the WILD System after 10 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 18 to see if they are eligible to buy an elk multi-season tag. The remaining 115 elk multi-season tag winners will receive an email from WDFW notifying them that they are eligible to buy a multi-season elk tag.

Beginning at 10 a.m. Tuesday. Aug. 18, 2,723 deer multi-season tags will also be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Hunters can buy licenses online, over the phone, or at an authorized Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) license dealer. WDFW regional offices and headquarters in Olympia remain closed to in-person license sales.

Hunters who want to buy a deer multi-season tag must have bought a 2020 deer multi-season special hunt application and have a general season deer license before buying a multi-season tag. Hunters who already have their 2020 general season tag must surrender it by contacting the WDFW Licensing Department at (360) 902-2464 before buying the multi-season tag.

Multi-season deer tags are $139.10, and multi-season elk tags are $182.00. Tag costs are the same for residents and non-residents. There will not be a purchase deadline for the elk or deer multi-season tags.

Multi-season deer tags will remain on sale until the tag limit is reached. Hunters who purchase a multi-season tag will not lose 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, until their tag is filled.

The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife is the state agency tasked with preserving, protecting, and perpetuating fish, wildlife, and ecosystems, while providing sustainable fishing, hunting, and other recreation opportunities.

I'm confused. Isn't there 2k leftover tags because not enough people applied? If not then why so many leftovers?

I applied and didn't draw.  That many lost their points when they didn't purchase.
