Idaho resident hunters who applied for big game hunts and were subject to the five-day waiting period to buy a capped elk zone tag are reminded they are eligible to buy capped zone tags starting at 10 a.m. MDT on Wednesday, July 15, and many of those zones are likely to sell out fast. Hunters can buy tags online, in person at F&G offices or vendors, or by calling (800) 554-8685 with a credit card. Here's what capped zone elk tags are available. 

Hunters are reminded there's an unlimited number of general-season, resident elk tags available for zones that are not capped or limited to controlled hunts. There's also no limit on the number of resident, general-season deer tags available.
