Nonresident tags on sale Dec. 1, except Sawtooth Zone elk tags

The 2017 nonresident licenses, tags and permits go on sale at 12:01 a.m. MST, Thursday, December 1, except for nonresident Sawtooth A and B zone elk tags.

The sale of these popular Sawtooth elk tags is being delayed because of concerns raised by high demand. The Idaho Fish and Game commission will determine how to allocate these tags after the big game season setting process is finalized in March.

Nonresident hunters can buy their licenses and tags at Fish and Game offices, any license vendor, or by credit card by calling 1-800-554-8685.

Residents can also buy 2017 hunting licenses and tags starting December 1, but they will be issued receipts for deer and elk tags which can be redeemed after the deer, elk, and pronghorn controlled hunt drawing is completed in July.
