Island Time

Meeting and permit needed to hunt on NAS Whidbey

Anyone interested in hunting on Naval Air Station Whidbey Island property during the 2012-2013 season have one more opportunity to attend a "One-Stop-Shop" meeting.

The meeting will be held from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 4 at Gallery Golf Course (Bldg. 130), 3065 N. Cowpens Road, Oak Harbor.

Information handouts will cover on-base hunting permit requirements, hunting areas and base access procedures.

Hunters may register, pay the $13 permit fee and receive an installation hunting permit.

In order to be issued an installation hunting permit, hunters must have a Washington State hunting license, which are not available on base.

Hunters must present licenses for the species they wish to hunt to acquire an installation hunting permit.

Civilian hunters may participate in the pheasant release program on the installation.

For information on the documents required and other questions, contact John Phillips at 360-257-8873.
