The regular deer season opens October 10 in most regions of Idaho.
In some areas, a regular deer tag allows hunters to take either mule deer or white-tailed deer. A white-tailed deer tag allows a hunter to take only a white-tail.
Many areas across the state also offer antlerless youth hunt opportunities, but check the 2014 big game rules brochure carefully for the areas where youth hunts are open.
To hunt deer in Idaho during the regular season, you must have a valid 2014 Idaho hunting license and a deer tag. There is still a good number of second deer tags available at a discounted price for 2014. For more information click: https://fishandgame.idaho.gov/content/tagdiscount
Fish and Game Conservation Officers ask that hunters report any poaching or suspicious activities they encounter or hear about while hunting. Most serious poaching cases are solved only with the help of ordinary Idaho residents, hunters or others who report crimes. If you have information about a wildlife crime, call the Citizens Against Poaching hot-line at 1-800-632-5999, 24 hours a day. Callers may remain anonymous.
Hunters also are encouraged to check out Idaho Fish and Game's backcountry game meat care guide. The guide has helpful tips to ensure proper handling of game to avoid wasting the meat. A link to the guide can be found on the Fish and Game website at: http://fishandgame.idaho.gov/public/hunt/rules/?getPage=63.
