Do you hunt? Your private information might be in the wrong hands.


The fishing and hunting license system was hacked and the Washington Department of Fish and Wildfire temporarily suspended all licenses.

The Office of Cyber Security is working with the agency, law enforcement and state officials to determine how much personal information was accessed and stolen.

The state is working to resume license sales and unsuspending licenses once they make sure the system is safe and secure for consumers.

If you have a fishing and hunting license and would like more information follow this link to the state Department of Fish and Wildlife.
