I just read in a magazine that in Idaho you can take a wolf or a bear with an elk or deer tag, is that true?

Answer:

Nonresident deer and elk tags (exluding nonresident junior mentored deer and elk tags) are valid to take a black bear, mountain lion or gray wolf instead of a deer or elk IF a season is open for that species, where and when the deer or elk tag is valid, and if there is an open deer or elk season in that same unit.  For more information, see page 14 and 98 of the 2013 Big Game Season and Rules: http://fishandgame.idaho.gov/public/docs/rules/bgCHinfo.pdf
