Win Big Bucks, Apply for Controlled Hunts Early

Send by email Printer-friendly version Share this

Hunters who apply early for this fall's controlled hunts for deer, elk, black bear and antelope can win big bucks in either of two ways: draw a tag and hunt one in the field, or be the lucky winner of a drawing worth $600 or $400.

The applications are accepted during the whole month of May, but only those received by May 10 will be entered in the $600 drawing to be held May 14. The next deadline is May 20 for the $400 drawing to be held May 25. The drawing is sponsored by the Idaho Fish and Wildlife Foundation and funded by GTECH Corporation. By encouraging the early application process, the Foundation and GTECH hope to prevent overload on the computer terminals at license vendors in the final days of the application period.

The same incentive was offered last year and proved popular with hunters.
