The basic requirement for hunting is a hunting license readily available at sporting goods stores, tackle shops, or the Idaho Fish and Game offices. A tag is required for big game species and turkey.
Hunters will find endless opportunities to pursue big game in Idaho. Idaho has the widest variety of big game hunting in the west and some of the world’s best elk hunting. The general season tag also called an over-the-counter tag, allows hunting for deer, elk, black bear, mountain lion, and wolf.
Controlled hunts include deer, elk, black bear, pronghorn, and Idaho’s trophy species, including moose, bighorn sheep, and mountain goats. Hunters can collect one of each trophy species in a lifetime, granted they’re lucky enough to draw the permits.
The best time of year for hunting in Idaho typically is from late summer through winter. If you’re new to hunting in Idaho, many outfitters specialize in creating customized guided hunts you will remember forever. If you’re already a hunter, hunting in Idaho is what you want!
