The chance at Idaho's ultimate hunting opportunity is up for grabs, as Fish and Game is once again selling tickets for the Super Hunt drawings. Entries in the first Super Hunt and Super Hunt Combo drawing must be received by May 31 with the drawing set for June 10. All entries received after May 31 will go into the second drawing scheduled for mid-August. All entries for the second drawing must be received by August 10.
Winners can participate in any open hunt in the state for deer, elk, pronghorn or moose. That includes general hunts and controlled hunts. Hunters can take an animal or animals on their Super Hunt or Super Hunt Combo tags in addition to any general season or controlled hunt tags they also hold. All other regulations of individual hunts apply.
During the first drawing in June, tags will be awarded for eight elk, eight deer, and eight pronghorn hunts as well as one moose hunt; one Super Hunt Combo ticket also will be drawn that will entitle the winner to hunt for one each: elk, deer, pronghorn, and moose.
In August, another Super Hunt Combo tag will be awarded, along with Super Hunt tags for two elk, two deer, and two pronghorn and one moose hunt.
The special drawings began in 2004 as a way to raise money for the Access Yes! program, which helps assure hunter and angler access to and across private lands by compensating willing landowners
