|Hunters Must Purchase Controlled Hunt Tags by Augu - Thursday, July 31, 2014
Big game hunters who were drawn in controlled hunt drawings for deer, elk, antelope and bear have only until August 1 to purchase their tags. Any tags not purchased by that date will be forfeited.
Controlled hunt tags are allocated by a random drawing from a pool of hunters who have submitted applications. Moose, bighorn sheep and mountain goat hunts in Idaho are all controlled hunts. Both general and controlled hunts are available for other big game species. (full story)
