Just wondering if non-residents have to purchase an Idaho hunting license in order to purchase the Idaho Super Hunt raffle tickets?
Don Seitz's friends thought he was wasting his time buying a Super Hunt ticket. They told him Idaho doesn't have any elk because wolves have eaten them all. He bought a ticket anyway and won a Super Hunt tag for an elk. Here's his answer to his friends back home in Missouri. - Don Seitz, 2010 Super Hunt elk tag winner.

“Calling in a 354 inch 8x9 Bull in the rut was really something to experience. I'll never forget it! Thanks to my friends and to IDFG for the excellent tag program my year was a huge success! I'm looking forward to dropping some tickets in the bucket next year!” – Jack Pederson, 2010 Super Hunt elk tag winner
Just to be able to choose any hunt was amazing. It's a hunter's dream. I wanted to hunt a place with few people and a lot of big bucks. That's just what I did. After hunting for nine days and looking over a ton of bucks, I saw him.

It all started with phone call from my brother, Dallas. "You lucky SOB, your name was drawn for the Super tag," he told me. "I couldn't believe it - best $50 I have ever spent. After the initial shock wore off, it was time to start scouting for the "WOW" buck."
Ryan's Super Hunt adventure ended with him getting his "WOW" buck. The buck unofficially scored 220" Boone & Crockett, and is 34 1/2" wide.
The state record score for a typical mule deer is 215 5/8, and for a nontypical it is 320 4/8. The Boone and Crockett world record typical mule is 226 4/8, and nontypical is 355 2/8.

Had the Super Hunt elk tag last year. I hunted unit 40 with all the other Super Hunt winners. Not bad, there are lots of drainages. Was able to take a nice 6/7 bull elk on the second day of the hunt that scored 364. If anyone needs info about the unit just post. I have a lot of phone#s of locals. If your lucky enough to draw the tag do research ." - Idaho Super Hunt Facebook post by Case Shively, April 2011
