2015 was Gavin Moody's second year for entering the Super Hunt drawing. He bought one entry each for deer, elk and moose. Much to his surprise, he drew the elk tag. Moody said he didn’t have a hunt in mind, but everyone he talked to recommended the Owyhee Desert and its famous elk herd that consistently produces trophy bulls.
Super Hunt winners get the best of the best by being able to hunt any open hunt in Idaho for the species they draw, and keep hunting, general or controlled hunts, until they tag an animal.
Winners of the Super Hunt Combo are able to hunt four species - deer, elk, pronghorn and moose - in any open hunt.
The deadline for the first Super Hunt drawing is May 31. Super Hunt entries are $6 each. Super Hunt Combo entries are $20 each. No license is needed to enter a Super Hunt drawing for either residents or nonresidents.
For the first Super Hunt drawing in June, tags for eight elk, eight deer, eight pronghorn and one moose will be drawn. One Super Hunt Combo will also be drawn. Winners will be notified by June 10.
Money raised by the drawings helps provides hunters and anglers access to public and private lands. One such program is Access YES! So far this year, Access Yes! opened 371,707 acres of private land and provided access to 549,635 acres of public land for hunters and anglers..
Entries submitted after the May 31 deadline will automatically be entered in the second drawing which takes place August 10. Two elk, two deer, two pronghorn and one moose tag will be drawn. One Super Hunt Combo will also be drawn. Winners will be notified by August 15.
