    Default Idaho Controlled Hunts

    Now that everyone's Idaho apps are in (hopefully, it closed yesterday) the countdown to the IDF&G website freezing up can begin. I'm hoping for 5 tags and planning on the one unlimited I put in for.

    They still had the "Apply Here" option up this morning when I looked. What's the typical time frame for results to be released.

    Usually results are out before the end of June. I'm confident I'll draw another extra doe tag and hoping a couple family members have some luck.

    My odds,

    deer- 30%
    Elk- 7%
    Lope 45%

    Wife odds,

    Deer- 6%
    Elk- 17%
    Lope- 35%

    So 140% chance we will get a tag!

    Put my wife, daughter, son and myself in for Deer, Elk and Antelope - all but one of the hunts are less than 5% draw odds. Hope one of us hits a home run!

    Yeah I fired off some low odds stuff too and figured I could hunt a general tag if time permits this fall. I'd really like to start hunting over there regularly, but just haven't done it for some reason.

    I had to laugh as I got an e-mail the other day from Eastman's proclaiming their top Idaho deer units and see that one of their top 2 or 3 was like 98% private land. WTF are they smoking over there? They send that recommendation to their readers who are 98% public hunters? At least the ads are interesting in the magazine most of the time except for the one for the custom rifles that has had a blatant spelling error in it for the last 6 volumes. Their MRS is trash.

    Sorry - back on track with hopes of Idaho tags for the HT'ers.

    My guess for results is a Monday at about 4:45 PM. Maybe the 26th

    General for me also, seeing as how it was nada for moose. But, on a positive my brother just received his moose tag in the mail this morning!

    I saw the same email, I got a kick out of the way he described those top 5 units. Some of the info was just plain incorrect.

    Been rough so far, haven't drawn nothing but a bigger balance on my CC. Myself and GF have 2 Deer apps and 1 Elk. Got around 14% between the 3. I like your chances way better em. Whatever happens we'll be heading to canyon country in the Fall. Good luck to everyone!!!

    I'm a newbie to big game hunting and put in my first draw application this year. How or where do I see the drawing odds? Is there a good place to go to better understand how the draw works and to maximize my results? This year I put in for Deer, Elk, and Lope all archery. TIA - Heff

    Idaho's website has a link to all the draw odds from the hunting page.

    Does Idaho have archery hunts that start in August like Wyoming?

    I still can't believe, that this day and age, with all the technology we have, that hunters are still expected to find out about an August hunt in July. Makes it hard for the average working guy with his name on his shirt to get time off, make arrangements for travel etc.

    I mean California is the most anti-hunting state in the union, and even with their size population, they turn their draw around in two weeks for all species. Surprises me that states like Idaho/Wyoming haven't had a major push to change their draw dates.
