Idaho elk hunters wanting to purchase a general season elk tag in a capped zone will need to keep two dates in mind in early July.
On Tuesday, July 10, all resident capped elk zone tags, except for the Sawtooth Zone, go on sale at 10 a.m. (MDT) at Fish and Game offices, license vendors, with a credit card at Fish and Game’s online vendor, or by calling (800) 554-8685.
On Thursday, July 12, resident Sawtooth Zone A and B elk tags go on sale, with half of the tags sold at Fish and Game offices and license vendors-only starting at 10 a.m. (MDT). The remaining half of the resident Sawtooth tags will go on sale online-only at 1 p.m. (MDT).
Capped zone tags are sold in limited numbers on a first-come, first-served basis. Demand for these tags is high, and many are expected to sell fast. Fish and Game officials adjusted the sale to give equal access for in-person sales at vendors and those who prefer to buy tags online.
