|WDFW Annual Survey of
Wolves in Washington – 2015
The survey confirmed the
presence of at least 90 wolves in
18 wolf packs with a total of
eight successful breeding pairs,
reflecting the continued growth
of the state’s wolf population.
Wildlife managers note that the
actual number of wolves in the
state is likely higher than those
confirmed by the survey.
| Hunting Permits for
Wild Horse Have Changed
PSE has updated the
process for issuing hunting permits
and non-hunting recreation
permits at Wild Horse.
Hunting permits are now administered and issued by
WDFW through their Hunt by Reservation Program.
PSE no longer issues permits for hunting at the Renewable
energy Center (visitor center). All hunting permits are
issued on-line. WDFW expects to have the wind farm
listed on their site by late April/early May.
Non-hunting recreation permits (hiking, bird-watching, etc)
are issued by PSE on their website or in person at the
Renewable Energy Center (visitor center).
Information about both hunting and non-hunting recreation
permits can be found at PSE's website.
