Friday, November 27, 2020 Oroville, WA 98844, USA

 Here's a reminder to our area hunters in Game Management Unit (GMU) 204, check the Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) for cougar hunting openings and closures. GMU 204 is currently open from September 1st to December 31st. However, starting January 1st, 2021, cougar hunters need to check harvest guidelines with WDFW to see if the cougar season remains open or closed.

On a different note, WDFW has a Cougar Management Removal Program that if warranted is held yearly from December 1st to March 31st in select Game Management Units (GMU).

In order to participate in the cougar management program, registration is required by faxing a request to the attention of Public Safety Cougar Removal 360-902-2162. Included your name, Wild ID, phone number and email address. Submissions need to be received by October 31st of each year.

Eligible participants must be a resident dog hunter. Individuals will be selected to randomly and will be contacted as needed. A big game license will be required. For more information, see the WDFW website.
