The draw for controlled hunts for spring black bear has been completed. Hunters who applied can determine if they were drawn at http://fishandgame.idaho.gov/ch, or by going to Drawing Results under the Licensing tab.
Fish and Game has mailed notification cards to those who were successful in the draw. However, it is the responsibility of hunters to find out whether their names were drawn in these hunts.
Hunters who already have a general season bear tag, may exchange their general season bear tag for the appropriate controlled hunt tag. Or they may keep their general season bear tag and purchase a controlled hunt bear tag. Any exchanges of tags must be completed at an Idaho Fish and Game office.
