Super Hunts

Super Hunt and Super Hunt Combo tags allow hunters to participate in any open hunt in the state for deer, elk, pronghorn and/or moose. To win a tag hunters need to purchase entries for the Super Hunt drawings.

Super Hunt tags allow winners to pursue a deer, elk, pronghorn or moose in any open hunt. This includes general hunts and controlled hunts.

The Super Hunt Combo winner is able to hunt all four species - deer, elk, pronghorn and moose in any open hunt.

Money raised by the drawings provides hunters and anglers access to private lands through the Access Yes! program.

Well, the Super Hunt tag thing didn't go as I had planned.

Monday Mar. 11, 2013 by idfg-vosborn

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.

Access Yes!

Last year, the Access Yes! Program opened up 431,803 acres of private land and 470,165 acres of public land for sportsmen.

Entering the Super Hunt drawing does not affect applying for or holding controlled hunt tags. Super Hunt tags are in addition to any general and controlled hunt tags a hunter has applied for or may already hold (except where other restrictions apply).
