Big game hunters whose names were drawn in controlled hunt drawings have until Saturday, August 1, to buy their tags, except in unlimited hunts.
Any tags not purchased by that date will be forfeited. After a second drawing, any leftover tags are sold over the counter.
The rules have changed for controlled hunt permits this year. Hunters who were successful in a controlled hunt drawing no longer have to buy a separate permit. All permit information is included on the tag.
Results of deer, elk, pronghorn and fall black bear controlled hunt drawings are available on the Fish and Game Website http://fishandgame.idaho.gov.
Hunters can buy those tags at any Fish and Game office, license vendor, by telephone at 800-554-8685 or 800-824-3729, or online at https://id.outdoorcentral.us/. For information on rules and dates for specific hunts consult the regulations brochure or the Fish and Game Website.
For hunters who weren’t drawn, big game over-the-counter tags also are available in many big game units. For details contact license vendors or local Fish and Game offices.
