Q. Is it too late to apply for depredation hunts this year?
A. Not at all. The sign-up period to participate in depredation hunts runs through June 30. Applications that come in after June 30 are added to the list but have little chance of being selected. Applicants must have a valid Idaho hunting or combination license. Depredation hunts, if needed, are usually held on short notice, in small areas and involve only a few hunters. Hunters may apply in only one region for a given species. For more information and an application form check pages 85 and 86 in the 2012 big game rule book, or go to http://fishandgame.idaho.gov/public/docs/rules/bgContHuntInfo.pdf.
