Isn't it about time to apply for controlled hunts?


It is time to think about choices for 2006 controlled hunts. (Draws for spring bear and turkey controlled hunts are already over.) Moose, mountain goat and bighorn applications are accepted during the month of April. Applications for elk, deer, pronghorn and fall black bear controlled hunts are accepted from May 1 through June 5. Yep, that's right-June 5. The application dates have been the month of May for many years but mixing applications with fishing license sales during the last week of May led to frustrations for all concerned. So the Fish and Game Commission added a week to the big game controlled hunt application period this year.
