Q. I'm a resident, and I didn't draw in any controlled hunt; when can I pick up a general season tag?
A. Most resident general season deer and elk tags go on sale December 1, but resident tags are not available until after the elk, deer and pronghorn controlled hunt drawings are over in July. The number of resident general deer tags is unlimited, and most general elk tags are unlimited. Resident tags for elk zones subject to a quota go on sale Tuesday, July 10. For a list of resident quota elk tags available go to http://fishandgame.idaho.gov/public/licenses/?getPage=76. For nonresident tags go to http://fishandgame.idaho.gov/public/licenses/?getPage=75. Hunters also have a second chance at leftover and unclaimed controlled hunt tags. The application period is from August 5 to 15 for the second drawing on August 20.
