Big game hunters who names were drawn in controlled hunt drawings have to buy their tags by August 1.
Any tags not purchased by that date will be forfeit. After a second drawing, any leftover tags are sold over the counter.
Results of deer, elk, antelope and fall black bear controlled hunt drawings are available on the Fish and Game website at: http://fishandgame.idaho.gov/apps/ch/results.cfm .
Hunters can buy their tags at any Fish and Game office, license vendor, by telephone at 800-554-8685, or online at https://id.outdoorcentral.us/ . For information on rules and dates for specific hunts consult the regulations brochure or the Fish and Game Website.
And those lucky enough to draw can use Fish and Game's Hunt Planner at: http://fishandgame.idaho.gov/ifwis/huntplanner  to plan those fall hunts.
It is the responsibility of hunters to determine whether they were drawn for a controlled hunt.
For hunters who weren't drawn, big game over-the-counter tags also are available in many big game units. For details contract license vendors or local Fish and Game offices.
