the way i understand the regulations is that Moose, Sheep, and Goat are special controlled hunts because they are once in a lifetime harvest and that you can applly for a Deer, Elk, Bear, Lion, or Turkey contolled hunt also in the same season.
The Mandatory Harvest Reports Dashboard allows one to view, filter and graph raw uncorrected harvest report submissions.
Updated nightly, this dashboard provides summary numbers for harvest, success and reporting of deer, elk and antelope hunts.
A friend of mine stumbled across a salt block in the mountains of unit 39, on public land. We figure its considered baiting; however, don't know the legalities - are we allowed to hunt the area if its removed, and if not, how far away from the area do we have to be to be considered legal ourselves? The specific area is one we hunt every year for elk and deer.
I recieved a survey for elk hunting in Idaho and one of the questions asked me if
I hunt in a capped zone, and if it affected where I hunt. I'm not sure what that means.
Non-resident hunters that buy a second elk tag typically are good enough hunters to fill it. This means that during bow season they may harvest two mature bulls. As a resident my cost for a second elk tag goes up by a factor of 13.5. It would seem only fair to: (1) charge a non-resident 2 or 3 times the cost of the first tag for the second elk tag or (2) limit his second kill to a cow if there was no price increase. I don't believe other states even allow a non-resident to shot a second elk and their non-resident fees for the first tag are typically higher than Idaho.
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
