Did you draw?
Hunters can check

New rule: Must pay by Aug. 20

Hunters can check their luck in the 2003 elk, deer and antelope controlled hunt draw by going online in the controlled hunt section of the Department and Fish and Game Web siteówww2.state.id.us/fishgame.

Operation of the results database is simple. Just fill in the blanks with a hunting license number and click. The result will pop up quickly. Otherwise, drawing results will be sent by mail to successful hunt applicants by Thursday, July 10.

However, hunters should realize there is a new rule in place this year that is designed to reduce the 6-8% of the permits that go unpurchased.

Hunters who are successful in the F&G drawing must purchase their tags for this fallís controlled hunts no later than Aug. 20. If they donít, the hunt will be forfeited and the tag will be thrown in an "unclaimed" pool.

Unclaimed tags will then go on sale as leftovers on a first-come, first-served on Aug. 30.

This is the first year than an early date has been imposed.

Remaining the same is the regular sale date for leftover controlled hunt permits for deer and elk. They go on sale Tuesday, July 15 at 10 a.m.óand they must be bought at license vendors and F&G offices, only. There are no leftover permits for antelope.
