Youth nonresident elk controlled hunt application.

Question:

Please confirm my understanding. A nonresident application and elk tag needs to be purchased and then the controlled hunt is applied for? If successful for the general tag, then the controlled youth hunt is applied for? Is there a deadline on the controlled hunt application? Thanks

You do not need to purchase the general season elk tag before you apply for a controlled elk hunt.  You must purchase the Idaho hunting license (the youth mentored hunting license is $31.75) and pay the application fee (nonresident fee is $14.75) to enter in the draw hunt.  If you are drawn you can then purchase your controlled hunt elk tag.  The application period is May 1-June 5
