Where can I hunt with my extra antlerless white-tailed deer tag?

There were 1,600 extra antlerless white-tailed deer tags issued through controlled hunts in the Panhandle in units of 1, 2, 3, & 5 this hunting season. If you were lucky enough to draw one of these tags, now that the weather has cooled off, you might be thinking about using it.  It is very important to make sure you know where that tag can be used.  You can use these tags on or within a mile of private land.  However, as stated in the regulations, "For the purpose of this hunt, "private land" does not include corporate timberlands."  These tags were issued to encourage harvest near agricultural land and help address depredation concerns; that is why corporate timber lands were not included in the definition of "private land."  You can hunt on state, federal, or corporate timber land, but only if you are within some private land that is not corporate timber land.  For specific season dates refer to page 24 in your Idaho Big Game Seasons and Rules book.
