Next season’s products available online, at dealers, by phone

If you’re a hunter or angler already daydreaming about your next big season, you can take the next step now that the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife has made 2023 license year products available.

The 2023-24 products for sale now include hunting and fishing licenses as well as special hunt and Multi-season applications.

Items for the 2023 license year are valid from April 1, 2023 through March 31, 2024.

Some of the options

If you’re planning a busy year on the water, you can take advantage of license combos like the Fish Washington and annual combination packages.

If hunting is your focus, there are options that combine deer, elk, bear, cougar, and small game licenses in different ways to suit your needs.

And if you’re covering the water and the field, the Get Outdoors license package is your one-stop shop for fishing and hunting that gets you ready for anything and does it at a savings.

Additionally, the Discover Pass is always for sale and provides vehicle access to millions of acres of Washington state parks and recreation lands. Discover Passes are valid for at least a year, from their date of purchase through the end of the same month the following year.
