Remember that when applying in Idaho if you already applied for sheep, moose, or goat in 2022, you cannot apply for the controlled hunts for deer, elk, and/or antelope.. If you apply for bighorn sheep, mountain goat, or moose, you may not apply for limited-entry deer, elk, or antelope unless the unit you apply for has unlimited permits for deer, elk, or antelope.. Any person who draws an antlered-only controlled hunt permit for deer or elk may not apply for any other controlled antlered-only hunts for that species for one year.. A person drawn in the previous year remains eligible to apply for a controlled hunt for the respective species drawn in the second application period in August, controlled hunts with an unlimited number of tags, or landowner appreciation antelope hunts..

So… this article is a HUGE reminder that all nonresident Idaho OTC deer and elk tags go on sale on December 1, 2021 @ 10 a.m. MST for purchasing a tag for the 2022 season .. Get ready ahead of time for this tag sale date, because most likely we will see the same long wait times that we saw last year when trying to pick up a tag on December 1 and some tags will sell out quickly.. Due to changes that happened last year, once again get ready for a long wait and tag to sell out quickly on the initial tag sale date..

Nonresidents will have to pick an elk zone, as in the past, but nonresident tags will be limited in all zones that were not previously capped for both nonresidents and residents.. Nonresident hunters planning to buy an elk tag and deer tag should also beware the deer tag will only be valid in one hunting unit, whereas most elk zones consist of several units.. 2021 they imposed a new limit on reduced-price tags for nonresident disabled American veterans, which is 500 nonresident DAV deer tags and 300 nonresident DAV elk tags for over-the-counter deer and elk hunts..
