Accessing Washington's Outdoors for Persons with Disabilities
Washington State Legislature, and/or the Fish and Wildlife
Commission establish eligibility requirements. The fact
that a person may receive a disability award or rating from
the Social Security Administration or any other federal,
state, and/or county entity does not automatically make
one eligible for the privileges issued by WDFW.
Washington State is recognized for its wide array of outdoor recreational activities and wildlife. The Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) encourages all persons with a disability to experience recreation in Washington's wonderful outdoors.
WDFW is proactive in offering numerous opportunities to its programs and activities for hunters and anglers with disabilities through legislative mandates, statues, and policies complying with provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
If you are a person with a disability and want to apply for disability status with WDFW, please click on the link below.
You will be transferred to the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife website where you can read important information about the program, apply for Veterans Reduced Fees, read about qualifying criteria to apply for Other Reduced Fees, need a Special Use Permit for an equipment modification, need an accommodation for your specific physical or developmental impairment, review WDFW ADA regulations, or just find a location of an ADA fishing or hunting site... The WDFW.wa.gov/accessibility website is the place to be.
