When can I sign up to participate in depredation hunts this year?

Question:

Answer:

The application deadline is June 30. Applications that come in after June 30 are added to the list but have little chance of being selected. Applicants must have a valid Idaho hunting or combination license. Depredation hunts, if needed, are usually held on short notice, in small areas and involve only a few hunters. Hunters may apply in different regions, but only once each year for deer, once for elk and once for pronghorn. Information and application forms are available in the 2010 Big Game Rules books, pages 76 and 77.
