After the first Super Hunt drawing of 2011, 26 lucky hunters won
the hunt of their dreams.
Winners of Super Hunt tags for a deer, elk, pronghorn or moose
can take an animal in any open hunt in addition to any general
season or controlled hunt tags they also hold. All other rules of
individual hunts apply.
Entries were up by nearly 30 percent from 2010. This year, of
about 39,921 entries, 3,376 were for eight pronghorn tags, 16,432
entries for eight deer tags, 12,415 entries for eight elk, 5,042
entries for one moose tag, and 2,656 entries were for the Super
Hunt Combo, which includes a tag for each of the four species.
The winners were:
Five resident hunters, two Utah hunters and one California
hunter won deer tags.
Five resident hunters, one Utah, one Oregon and one Minnesota
hunter won elk tags.
Five resident hunters, one Wisconsin, one Washington and one
Utah hunter won pronghorn tags.
An Idaho hunter won the moose tag.
A Wyoming hunter won the combo tag.
State law prevents Idaho Fish and Game from releasing the names
of the winners, but all have been notified.
The second Super Hunt drawing will be in mid-August when another
“Super Hunt Combo” and entries for two elk, two deer and two
pronghorn hunts along with one moose hunt will be drawn.
The entry period for the second drawing continues through August

the Access Yes! program, which helps assure hunter and angler
access to and across private lands by compensating willing
