Get Your “Orange On” as WDFW Issues Strong Hunting Forecasts

Saturday, October 12, 2013 Oroville, WA 98844, USA



The Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) forecasts strong deer hunting opportunities state-wide. Storms in recent weeks dampened the forest floor helping quiet down hunters’ footsteps. Dave Ware, game manager for WDFW expects “the season to be a good one.”

More than 100,000 hunters are expected to hunt for deer as opening day approaches for modern firearm on October 12th. Game managers for Okanogan County predicts a strong mule deer bucks ratio. Harvests are expected to increase this year as the dry conditions have disappeared.

Due to the government shutdown, hunters are being advised to set up camp early and have back up plans just in case federal access facilities are closed.

As required by state law, hunters need to wear hunter-orange clothing. WDFW also advises people in or around hunting areas open to modern firearms also wear hunter-orange clothing.
