WDFW: Master Hunter Permit Program will accept applications starting Jan. 1

Whipple encourages individuals who enroll in the program to prepare thoroughly for the written test, because applicants are allowed only one chance to re-take the exam.

There are about 1,850 certified master hunters currently enrolled in the program, which is now administered by WDFW’s Wildlife Program. Enrollment was closed during calendar year 2013 to allow WDFW time to review the program, clarify its role, and identify strategies to better engage members in high-priority volunteer work.

Approved volunteer work conducted during 2013 will be honored for individuals applying in 2014.
