Controlled and super hunt deadlines near

Print Article

Hunters who want to apply for an Idaho big game controlled hunt have until June 5 to apply. Resident Idaho hunters with a 2019 hunting license pay a $6.25 application fee, and nonresident applications are $14.75. Hunters can apply online at any license vendor, at Fish and Game offices, or by phone at (800) 554-8685. Winners will be posted online by July 10.

In addition, hunters can also apply for a “super hunt,” tag that allows hunting in any unit open for that species — general and controlled hunts. The super hunt application period closes at midnight May 31 and entries cost $6 each.

The first 25 drawings will be for eight elk, eight deer, and eight pronghorn, and one moose hunt. One combo entry will be drawn that allows the winner to hunt all four species — elk, deer, pronghorn and moose. Winners will be notified by June 10.

A second drawing will be for two elk, two deer, two pronghorn, and one moose hunt. The entry period for the second drawing ends Aug. 10, with winners notified by Aug. 20.
