We drew antelope tags last year for unit 39. The Friday before the season opened my buddy had to have emeregency heart bypass surg. He turned in his raincheck paperwork with the doctors note two weeks after the season started (he was in the hosp). He has never heard anything back from IFG about the raincheck. He paid for his tag and was not able to use it because of a unforeseen emeregency medical issue. Should this be graounds for a raincheck. This tag is hard to get, in the first place.
A co-worker of mine said that he saw 2 antelope in Round Valley around milepost 102 on highway 55. Did the F&G bring these in?
A recent article from NPR highlights the native camoflouge of Idaho's pronghorn. Being very quite is an amazing defense mechanism for these animals until they are old enough to run from predators.
While we're talking about pronghorn fawns, a recent video clip from our 75th Celebration shows historical footage of Idaho Fish and Game biologists "dip netting" (yes, like you'd use for a fish) pronghorn fawns as a management tool. Please note, we do not recommend standing on the tops of cars while driving offroad, as they do in the video below.
There is an antelope tag my buddy forgot to put in on and I wanted to know if he could put in for it if it is an unlimited tag? I know that the second draw is for left over tags, but I didn't know if I could put in on a hunt that had unlimited tags?
