From the Idaho Department of Fish and Game
-- Now it's even easier to enter for a chance to win the Idaho hunt of a lifetime since the Fish and Game has changed the way it conducts the Super Hunt. Starting with the first drawing next year, it will all be done electronically.
The Super Hunt is a fund-raising drawing for 40 big game tags. The tags are handed out to winners in two drawings. Entries are drawn for elk, deer, pronghorn and moose tags. Winners can participate in any open hunt in the state for deer, elk, pronghorn or moose. That includes general hunts and controlled hunts.
Last year, the Idaho Fish and Game Commission changed the price of Super Hunt and Super Hunt Combo entries in an effort to simplify sales for the fundraising drawings.
The change has allowed electronic entries, instant processing and eliminated the need for filling out tickets by hand. Entries are no longer sold in packages. The simplified pricing allows the purchase of any number and combination of Super Hunt and Super Hunt Combo entries.
The first Super Hunt entry will cost $6. Each additional entry purchased at the same time will cost $4. The Super Hunt Combo entries work the same way. The first one costs $20, and each additional entry purchased at the same time will cost $16.
The first drawing is in June when entries are drawn for eight elk, eight deer and eight pronghorn hunts as well as one moose hunt. One Super Hunt Combo entry also will be drawn that will entitle the winner to hunts for one each elk, deer, pronghorn and moose.
The second drawing is in August with two winners for elk, two for deer, two for pronghorn and one for a moose along with another Super Hunt Combo winner.
Winners can participate in any open hunt in the state for deer, elk, pronghorn or moose, including general and controlled hunts.
Entries can be purchased online at http://fishandgame.idaho.gov/superhunt/, at license vendors and Fish and Game offices, by phone at (800) 554-8685 or (800) 824-3729 or by mail: IDFG License Section, P.O. Box 25, Boise, ID 83707.
Money from the sale of entries supports the Access Yes! Program, which compensates landowners to provide hunter and angler access to or across private land.
