I applied for a deer controlled hunt and didn't get drawn. Now I see that there are permits for that hunt available for the second drawing. How is that possible?

Answer

Applicants whose names were drawn had through August 1 to pick up their controlled hunt tags. If they didn't pick them up, their tags became available for the second drawing. The application period for the second drawing for deer, elk and pronghorn hunts runs through August 15. The drawing will be August 20. Any left over permits will go on sale August 25. The list of leftover and unclaimed tags is online at: http://fishandgame.idaho.gov/cms/licenses/leftover/deab2.cfm and at vendors statewide.
