Idaho Fish and Game will Issue Children Hunting Tags After All
Boise, Idaho (KMVT-TV / KSVT-TV) – Idaho Fish and Game Director Virgil Moore said that after careful review and consideration, all tags drawn on June 23 for controlled hunts in Idaho will be awarded to those whose license numbers were chosen.
To compensate for the tags that went to youth hunters under the age of 12, the Director will release 283 additional tags to be drawn for those deer, elk and pronghorn hunts which have a limited number of tags. All existing applicants who were eligible prior to July 1, will be included in that draw.
The additional tags are being released in response to hunters who felt their chances of drawing a tag were diminished by the entries of 9 to 11 year olds. Hunts where these additional tags apply will be posted on the Fish and Game website July 2. That drawing will take place as soon as possible, and the results will by available by July 10 on Fish and Game’s website. Those who were successful in the original drawing and those who are selected in the additional drawing will have until August 1 to pick up their tags.
