Most people know my passion for Idaho is the fact we have over the counter (OTC) tags, but in certain areas and with certain species controlled hunts are needed for better control of wildlife management. Now is the time to put in for Idaho spring bear controlled hunts…that is if you are not choosing to hunt a general season area. The application period is January 15-February 15. Applications are due for spring turkey controlled hunts February 1-March 1. Applications can be made at any Idaho Fish and Game license vendor or on line at IDFG website . Good luck in the draw and hope to see many of you enjoying all that Idaho has to offer!
