King County Parks will open Island Center Forest to deer hunting for a fifth-annual limited season Oct. 17-31, when no other access will be permitted on 200 acres of forestland.

The hunting season coincides with the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife’s designated hunting season in which all firearms can be used, except rifles. The action reduces the state’s established four-month-long hunting season to a two-week-long season in Island Center Forest, which is popular for hiking, walking and other recreational uses.

Hunters are required to purchase a modern firearm hunting license. Bows and arrows, crossbows, muzzleloaders, revolver-type handguns and shotguns are allowed.
