second chance elk tags

I have purchased a Lemhi zone elk tag. can I still apply for second chance controlled hunt?

Answer: 

Page 112 of the 2014 big game proclamations explains the Departments tag exchange rules. Hunters may exchange general season elk tags for use in another zone or controlled hunt at any Fish and Game office. However, The exchange must be completed before the first hunt opening date of the tag you currently possess. Because the Lemhi A tag has an any weapon season that started August 1, you would not be able to exchange the tag for any controlled hunt tag potentially drawn in the second drawing.
