Hunters are required to file a report on their deer, elk and pronghorn hunts within 10 days after harvest or within 10 days after the end of the hunt if they did not harvest.
Hunters are required to file a report for each tag they bought whether they went hunting or not.
To make it easier to file a report, Fish and Game has a 24-hour, toll-free phone line to speak to a live operator when filing reports. Call 1-877-268-9365 to file reports 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Or go to the Fish and Game Website to file a report at: http://fishandgame.idaho.gov/public/hunt/?getPage=106..
To file reports, hunters need to know their tag numbers or hunting license numbers, the number of days they hunted, the game management units they hunted in, the date they harvested, and the number of antler points on the animal they harvested, or the length of the horns for pronghorns in inches.
These harvest data are valuable to Idaho Fish and Game for managing big game populations.
Hunters who have not filed their reports will be sent a reminder postcard in mid-November. Some hunts are still open at that time, a few until the end of December. Reports should be filed when the hunt is over.
Harvest data for past years is available on the Fish and Game website at:
- Deer: http://fishandgame.idaho.gov/public/hunt/?getPage=116.
- Elk: http://fishandgame.idaho.gov/public/hunt/?getPage=115.
- Pronghorn: http://fishandgame.idaho.gov/public/hunt/?getPage=119.
