Deer hunters interested in partaking of a special limited-entry hunt in the northern Okanogan have until midnight Wednesday, Aug. 18 to enter the lottery.
A total of 18 special permits will be issued, six each to archers, muzzleloaders and modern rifle hunters, for hunts on the Charles and Mary Eder Unit of the Scotch Creek Wildlife Area. The Eder Unit is located in the highlands east of Oroville.
Hunts for each weapons type are timed to take place during the normal September and October hunts for each. The area will be otherwise off-limits to deer hunting.
Applications for the drawing can be made on-line at http://wdfw.wa.gov/hunting/permits/scotchcreek/ and also by calling the WDFW northcentral region office at (509) 754-4624 or WDFW’s Olympia headquarters at (360) 902-2515.
The drawing will be held Thursday, Aug. 19 and entrants can check online the last week in August for the results. Access permits and maps of the Eder Unit boundaries will be mailed then to successful applicants.
