Press Release

2018 deer, elk, pronghorn, black bear, and turkey controlled hunt drawing results available

Successful applicants must buy their controlled hunt tags no later than Aug. 1

Hunters can check to see if they drew controlled hunt tags for deer, elk, pronghorn, black bear, and turkey. Results are posted through Fish and Game's licensing system at for those who already have an account.

Those without an online license system account can get step-by-step instructions on the Controlled Hunt Results web page.  

Hunters who were successful in the draw will receive a postcard by mail, and all successful applicants must buy their tags by Aug. 1 or the tag they drew will be forfeited and offered in the second drawing. 

Hunters who did not draw a tag still have the opportunity to get a prime deer, elk, pronghorn or moose hunt through the Super Tag program, which is separate from and different than other controlled hunts. Super Hunt entries are $6 each, or $20 each for the Super Hunt combo, and people can apply as many times as they like. 

The Super Hunt entry period goes through August 10, where tags for two elk, two deer, two pronghorn, one moose, and one Super Hunt Combo will be drawn. Winners will be notified by August 20. Hunters may enter the drawings at license vendors, Fish and Game offices, online at, or by calling 1-800-554-8685.

Proceeds raised in the drawings support Idaho Fish and Game's access programs.
