Controlled hunts aren’t the only way to get premium hunts, and there is still time for hunters to apply for the second Super Hunt drawing. Species-specific Super Hunt tags allow you to hunt in any unit open for that species — general and controlled hunts. Enter for a Super Hunt tag as many times as you like.
The second drawing will be for two elk, two deer, two pronghorn and one moose hunt. One Super Hunt Combo entry will also be drawn, entitling the winner to hunt all four species — elk, deer, pronghorn and moose.
The application period runs through Saturday. To apply, call 1-800-554-8685 or go to idfg.idaho.gov/superhunt or visit Fish and Game offices or license vendors. Super Hunt entries are $6 each. Super Hunt Combo entries are $20 each. Winners will be notified by Aug. 20.
