    Super Hunt winner tells his tale.

    Idaho Super Hunt tags are one of the most unusual hunting opportunities in the West.  First, you don’t need a state hunting license to enter a Super Hunt drawing.  Two, if you win, you have the opportunity to hunt in any open hunt for your species.

    Every year, 34 hunters win Super Hunt and Super Hunt Combo tags.  The drawings began in 2004, which means only 442 hunters belong to this rare winner's circle.
