I do have a question on deer tags.  Take the panhandle area.

Who would voluntarily buy a whitetail tag for the panhandle, when they can shoot either a mule deer or a whitetail with the regular tag, assuming there is quota available for both?  Seems a little odd to me.

There are even tags in the mountains where both species more readily coexist, where there are still any deer tags available, but still some people have selected the whitetail tags. 

Am I missing something or are people just dumb?

The rut.

On the general tag in most areas, you have to hunt the general season and do not get to hunt the white tail rut.

White tail only tag allows you to hunt oct 10th-Nov 20th or Dec 1 with a rifle.


I imagine a pretty big citation if caught hunting with a general tag in November during a white tail only season.... also, non resident general tags only good for particular units now.

Don't the whitetail tags have a later season, in November?
Yes. In most units

Dumb is a little harsh... just say your not thinking clearly because your overwhelmed with the joy of moving to Idaho and blinded by the freedom's that you experience on a day to day basis.

youíre not missing anything, people that buy a whitetail tag first in the panhandle are making a dumb move.  But not as dumb as the people that bought regular deer tags in units like 14 and 18.  They handicapped themselves to only hunting till the 3rd of November.  My guess is that they are new to the Idaho game and didnít know any better.

Everyone who hunts has different expectations, desires, amount time to hunt, knowledge about where they want to hunt, etc, etc. That's why every tag will likely sell out before season ever gets here!

Sometimes you wonder how many people who bought those 14 and 18 tags realize they cannot hunt mule deer with that tag? Or maybe it's the people who hunt the private property buying those tags.

"looks like IDAHO is going to sell 4,376 FEWER NR Elk tags under this new system the way I see it ?
"     
My guess is a lot of these tags will sell in the draws for special hunts for non residents.

They didn't change the total number of tags to non-residents, the new system just put non-resident limits on units to prevent non-resident crowding.

But the total of the unit limits is 4490 less than the overal limit which is now meaningless except for surplus tag sales to residents .  ????

Did you add the outfitters set aside?
How about the DAV quota?
How about controlled hunt tags?

Seems like there is another quota I'm missing, but can't remember.

(When you draw a CH tag and turn in a tag you already have it gets added back to the available tags. If you book with an outfitter he will likely ask you to swap tags so he gets credit for using his allocation, then your tag gets swapped for an outfitter tag and the old tag gets added to the available tags to the public.)

I forget exactly how many outfitters get, but if they are not used by the end of July the public gets the rest of them.

Another thing I forgot to mention, nonresident youth tags are unlimited and not even a part of the non-resident quota, most people do not know that. Additionally, Youth deer tags are also still valid for any general deer unit. If an elk zone or deer unit is sold out you can still buy youth tags for that zone or unit.

Idaho Non Resident Tag Quota page is saying its sold out totals include Guide tags.
With 4000 + tags available as leftover maybe you coukd get a second tag in a different area but they probably wonít knowingly allow that
