I live in Ohio and wish to elk hunt next year. Can I show up in Idaho and purchase license and elk tag. And is it DIY hunt?
Elk Tag Quotas
On the website showing the available non-resident tags by elk zone, the number of available tags (in the right hand column) exceeds the alloted quota for non-residents.
Why is this? Shouldn't this number be less than or equal to the quota, differing by the number of non-resident tags already purchased for each zone and hunt? This discrepancy seems to only affect the A and B hunts for the Lolo, Selway, and Middle Fork Zones.
I am a little confused here. For several zone the number of tags available is greater than the quota?
For example, Lolo Zone A tag indicates a quota of 216, but indicates that 228 tags are available? How is that possible?
