As an out of state hunter, can i purchase over the counter Deer tags on October 12th for a hunt that starts Oct 10th?

Area 24 (McCall area)
Short range

I get into town on October 12th around 5-6am and will be at the Fish and Game when they open on Friday morning.

Answer

Yes, it is legal for any hunter (whether resident or nonresident) to purchase big game tags after the season for them has opened.
