Ask Fish and Game: Second Deer Tags

Q. I am an Idaho resident hunter; can I get more than one deer tag?

A. In general, the answer is one deer per hunter per year. But a few controlled hunts and depredation hunts offer the opportunity for hunters to harvest additional deer. Deer hunters also may buy one unsold nonresident general season deer and elk tag at the nonresident price starting August 1 to be used as a second tag. And if the hunter is lucky, he or she may win a Super Hunt tag for a deer. That all adds to the possibility of buying five deer tags. A hunter may take only one deer per valid legal tag in his or her possession.
