Idaho Fish and Game has changed the way it conducts the Super Hunt - starting with the first drawing this year, it will be done electronically.
Entries in this year's first Super Hunt and Super Hunt Combo drawing must be received at the Fish and Game headquarters by May 31 with the drawing set for June 15.
The Super Hunt is a fund-raising drawing for 40 big game tags. The tags are handed out to winners in two drawings. Entries are drawn for elk, deer, pronghorn and moose tags. Winners can participate in any open hunt in the state for deer, elk, pronghorn or moose. That includes general hunts and controlled hunts.
Hunters may purchase any number and combination of Super Hunt and Super Hunt Combo entries.
The first Super Hunt entry will cost $6. Each additional entry purchased at the same time will cost $4 each. The Super Hunt Combo entries work the same way.
The first one costs $20, and each additional entry purchased at the same time will cost $16.
The first drawing is in June when entries are drawn for eight elk, eight deer, and eight pronghorn hunts as well as one moose hunt. One Super Hunt Combo entry also will be drawn that will entitle the winner to hunts for one each elk, deer, pronghorn, and moose.
The entry period for the second drawing is June 2 through August 11.
The second drawing is in August with two winners for elk, two for deer, two for pronghorn and one for a moose along with another Super Hunt Combo winner.
Winners can participate in any open hunt in the state for deer, elk, pronghorn or moose, including general and controlled hunts.
