MOST IDAHO CAPPED TAGS ON SALE JULY 10TH. SAWTOOTH ON SALE JULY 12TH
Resident hunters wanting to purchase a general season elk tag in a “capped” zone need to pay attention to two July dates when tags go on sale. Capped zone tags for residents are sold in limited numbers on a first-come, first-served basis starting at 10 a.m. (MDT) July 10 except the Sawtooth Zone.
Important note: Please read these “best practices” carefully in order to purchase a capped tag online:
- Fish and Game’s online security measures require buyers to establish a unique account with a user name and password. Before tags go on sale, hunters are encouraged to set up their online account well in advance and remember their user name and password.
- Purchase your hunting license before tags go on sale. Tags will not be available to purchase until a hunting license has been purchased. By doing this before tags go on sale, the hunter is able to go straight to the list of tags to purchase when the sale starts.
- Know when the tag is successfully purchased. Putting a tag in the online shopping cart does not reserve, award, or secure that tag. Tags are only awarded after successfully completing the payment transaction.
Resident Sawtooth Zone A and B elk tags go on sale July 12,
with half of the tags to be sold at Fish and Game offices and license vendors-only starting at 10 a.m. (MDT). The remaining half go on sale online-only beginning at 1 p.m. (MDT).
In the Salmon Region, capped zones includes tags in the Middle Fork and Sawtooth zones, as well as Salmon B-tags and Pioneer B-tags. Demand for these tags is high, and many are expected to sell fast.
