JEROME, Idaho (KLIX) – Hunters have until Aug. 1 to see if they’ve drawn a controlled hunt tag.

The Idaho Department of Fish and Game says there are several ways for hunters to check if they've drawn a black bear, deer, elk, pronghorn or turkey hunt:

  • Those who have an account may go to the department’s licensing system
  • Those without an account can get step-by-step instructions on the Controlled Hunt Results webpage
  • Hunters may also check with Fish and Game offices or at any licensed vendor; or
  • By calling 800-554-8685.

Fish and Game says the drawing this year, but the deadline is the same. That means “people have less time before the deadline.”
