Super Hunt Applications on Sale Now
A great chance for the hunt of a lifetime awaits winners in this year's Super Hunt drawings.
The special drawings began in 2004 with the purpose of raising money for the Access Yes! program. The name has been changed from Super Tag to Super Hunt, but the real news is that the application fees have been reduced from last year. A single application is $4.95 in 2005, compared to $6.50 in 2004, and multiples of applications are also reduced in price.
Applications are available at license vendors, all Fish and Game offices, on the Internet at fishandgame.idaho.gov, and on the phone at 800-824-3729 or 800-554-8685.
Applications for the first drawing must be received by May 31 with the drawing set for June 13.
At that time, tickets for tags will be drawn for eight elk, eight deer, and eight antelope hunts as well as one moose hunt. One "Super Hunt Combo" ticket will be drawn that will entitle the winner to hunt for one each elk, deer, antelope, and moose.
A second drawing will be held August 15 when another "Super Hunt Combo" and tickets for two elk, two deer, and two antelope hunts along with one moose hunt will be drawn. The application period for the second drawing is June 1 through August 10.
