About Deer Hunting: Some Official Info

Renee Coe provided me with the following information about hunting on the Point:

"I spoke to Washington Fish and Wildlife (Mill Creek office).  Here is some additional information in case you were interested."

Washington Dept. of Fish and Wildlife Hunting Publication 
(See page 18 for Archery General Deer Season - Point Roberts is Game Management Units (GMUs)/Deer Areas number 407).

  • All hunters, regardless of age, must have in their possession a valid hunting license and any required tags, permits, or stamps to hunt wildlife.
  • You can apply for a second deer license if selected for special permit.
  • One hunter report is required for each transport tag and permit acquired.
  • It is recommended to require permission from a landowner to hunt on private property.

Whatcom County Code, Firearm Regulations are the following:

  • Firearm means any weapon or device from which a projectile may be fired by an explosive such as gunpowder
  • There is a *no shooting zone* for all of Point Roberts. The only way to hunt deer is with bow and arrow. 
  • Must have permission from property owner if on private property
  • It is unlawful within a county-owned park for any person to:  Discharge or propel across, in, or into any county-owned park a firearm, bow and arrow, spear gun, harpoon, or air or gas weapon, or any similar dangerous device capable of injuring or killing any person or animal, or damaging or destroying any public or private property.
