None of my hunting crew got drawn I hear that Idaho does not have a drawing and spring bear is just an over the counter tag,does anybody know if this is true? I really have an itch to go hunting and can't wait until summer.
I couldn't find anything about when the season starts but there website does say a non resident lic is 141.50 a bear tag is 151.75 and a bait permit is 12.75. They do offer a reduced bear tag for 31.75 in the lolo,selway,middle fork units 10,12,16a,17,19,20 and 21. They also a turkey tag for 67.50 here is the link http://fishandgame.idaho.gov/cms/hunt/rules/bg/
