The word is out and Idaho has been rediscovered as an amazing big game hunting destination as nonresident deer tags and many elk zone tags sold out this year for the first time in about the last 8 years. Hunters are finally realizing that hunting out west does NOT need to be complicated: simply come to Idaho and buy your tags over the counter and go hunting…for trophy class animals to boot! And if that is too complicated, book with a reputable outfitter and let him take care of all the license and tag purchasing for you. It is that simple. From all indications, 2015 was an amazingly successful year for all public land hunters, outfitted or DIY hunters and with a very mild beginning to winter this year, it could make 2016 shape up to be just as good or better. If you already know you are planning to hunt Idaho next year, you may as well purchase your tags now as they are on sale at http://fishandgame.idaho.gov/ or visit a local IDFG license vendor and take that first step towards your 2016 Idaho hunting adventure!
