If you are looking to try for a chance at some of Idaho’s best hunts, you have until 11:59 p.m. (MDT) on June 5 to apply for big game controlled hunts. To ensure the best possible experience, don’t wait until the last minute to apply.
Resident Idaho hunters pay a $6.25 application fee, and nonresident applications are $14.75. You can apply online, at any license vendor, at Fish and Game offices or by phone at 800-554-8685. Remember that you will need a 2019 hunting license to apply for a controlled hunt, and mail in applications are no longer accepted. Winners will be posted online by July 10.
A full list of the hundreds of controlled hunts offered can be found in the 2019-20 Big Game Seasons and Rules booklet, which is available at license vendors and Fish and Game offices in printed form.
