Super Hunt Fees, Drawing Simplified

Idaho Fish and Game is changing the way it conducts the Super Hunt – starting with the first drawing next year, it will all be done electronically.

The Super Hunt is a fund-raising drawing for 40 big game tags. The tags are handed out to winners in two drawings for elk, deer, pronghorn and moose tags.

Winners can participate in any open hunt in the state for deer, elk, pronghorn or moose. That includes general hunts and controlled hunts.

Last year, the Idaho Fish and Game Commission changed the price of Super Hunt and Super Hunt Combo entries in an effort to simplify sales for the fundraising drawings.

The change has allowed electronic sales, instant processing and eliminated the need for filling out tickets by hand. Entries are no longer sold in packages. The simplified pricing allows the purchase of any number and combination of Super Hunt and Super Hunt Combo entries.

The first Super Hunt entry will cost $6. Additional entries purchased at the same time will cost $4 each. The Super Hunt Combo entries work the same way. The first one costs $20, and each additional entry purchased at the same time will cost $16.

The drawings will be done by a computer, similar to the way controlled hunts are drawn.

The first Super Hunt drawing is in June when entries are drawn for eight elk, eight deer and eight antelope hunts as well as one moose hunt. One Super Hunt Combo entry also will be drawn that will entitle the winner to hunts for one each elk, deer, antelope and moose.

The second drawing is in August with two winners for elk, two for deer, two for antelope and one for a moose along with another Super Hunt Combo winner.

Winners can participate in any open hunt in the state for deer, elk, pronghorn or moose, including general and controlled hunts.

Entries can be bought online at: http://fishandgame.idaho.gov/superhunt/, at license vendors and Fish and Game offices, by phone at 800-554-8685 or 800-824-3729, or by mail at: IDFG License Section, P.O. Box 25, Boise, ID 83707.

Money from the drawings supports the Access Yes! program, which compensates landowners who provide hunter, angler and trapper access to or across private land.
