Second Super Hunt application period deadline Aug. 10
Controlled hunts aren't the only way to get premium hunts, and there is still time for hunters to apply for the second drawing for Super Hunt tags. Species-specific Super Hunt tags allow you to hunt in any unit open for that species – general and controlled hunt. You enter for a Super Hunt tag as many times as you like.
The application period for the second Super Hunt drawing runs through Aug. 10. Super Hunt entries are $6 each. Super Hunt Combo entries are $20 each.
The second drawing will be for two elk, two deer, and two pronghorn, and one moose hunt. One Super Hunt Combo entry also will be drawn that entitles the winner to hunt all four species - elk, deer, pronghorn and moose. Winners will be notified by Aug. 20.
Hunters may enter the drawings at license vendors, Fish and Game offices, online at idfg.idaho.gov/superhunt, or by calling 1-800-554-8685.
