Press Release

Don't Forget to Report on Deer, Elk, Pronghorn Tags

Hunters are required to file a report on their deer, elk and pronghorn hunts within 10 days after harvesting, or within 10 days after the close of the hunt if they were unsuccessful or did not hunt.

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 also 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 Web site 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 Fame for managing big game populations.

Harvest data for past years is available on the website at:
