From Idaho Fish and Game
-- Big game hunters whose names were drawn in controlled hunt drawings have until August 1 to buy their tags.
Any tags not purchased by that date will be forfeited. After a second drawing, any leftover tags will be sold over the counter.
The rules have changed for controlled hunt permits. Hunters who were successful in a controlled hunt drawing no longer have to buy a separate permit. All permit information is included on the tag.
It is the hunter's responsibility to check the drawing results. Results of deer, elk, antelope and fall black bear controlled hunt drawings are available on the Fish and Game website http://fishandgame.idaho.gov/apps/ch/results.cfm.
Hunters can buy those tags at any Fish and Game office, license vendor by telephone at (800)554-8685 or online at https://id.outdoorcentral.us/. For information on rules and dates for specific hunts consult the regulations brochure or the Fish and Game website.
And those lucky enough to draw can use Fish and Game's Hunt Planner at http://fishandgame.idaho.gov/ifwis/huntplanner to plan those fall hunts.
For hunters who weren't drawn, big game over-the-counter tags also are available in many big game units, license vendors or local Fish and Game offices.
