Yep, pretty crazy how general tags have come to this for ID. These are general tags, not some golden ticket to a glory, quality hunt. But to fowl smackers point, other states have either made it too hard for nonres, too expensive, or managed their game poor enough to flip OTC ID to a coveted tag.

Most of these units are unlimited to residents. I did pickup a deer unit in an A tag zone I'm going to help with my buddies on for archery so I'm not speaking out of bitterness.

1) Must log in to account to get in virtual waiting room. Eliminates multiple devices

2) Each hunter must be present for in-person purchases

3) Ability to get in virtual waiting room as a pair or group
I think these would be logical changes.

Sounds like there will be some changes next year.

I would probably be in favor of a December draw for general tags. That is effectively what it would be, anyway.

Been hearing about changes for years now.  None have happened other than maybe a smoother running online sales
How many years? The new rules just started in 2021. Lol.

I

At least 3.   If your not willing to drive 13 hours round trip and sleep outside in the snow overnight to get a tag then maybe you donít want one bad enough.  Lol. FYI, I donít do it because there isnít a tag worth it to me.

This is what I am going to say, think about it.... 

If someone has your last name, d.o.b. and last four of your social and a credit card number they can buy a tag for you. 

At 9 a.m. all of that info is put in quickly,  no one needs to be standing in a line, no one has to be online.  All of the info can be put in dozens of times, hundreds of times, quickly.  Lot's of money will be made and even more money can be made depending on who gets put in first.

 
 



I think youíre implying that folks have built scripts that run through the application process on the vendor portal.

Some web sites have security to prevent such scripts from being run, but no idea if the Idaho site has such.

Folks setting up scripts to game such systems isnít a new thing.

Last year Idaho said 76% of the tags were bought online.  No need to change folks, its going to keep getting better.   But use the mobile app not computer web site is key.

I think one of the biggest issues of concern is people getting kicked out during the transfer from waiting room to purchase page.
I know about 6 people that had that happen
I tried to add license and tags and got the thinking circle of death for about ten seconds.
I quickly canceled my request....I repeated the process without incident..
Definitely an overload issue or system hiccup.

I can't get the table to post but here is some info on tag sales by year & location.

Dec 2020:  88% Internet  6% vendors  3% IDF&G Ofc   3% Telephone
Dec 2021:  87% Internet  8% vendors  3% IDF&G Ofc  2% Telephone
Dec 2022:  77% Internet 15% vendors 4% IDF&G Ofc 4% Telephone

I don't see 2023 yet but the trend is looking like in-person is increasing as online decreasing.

Another thing that would be better is having 2 sales 1 for deer and 1 a week later for elk. Lots of deer guys are plugging the computer up for elk guys. You may get a deer tag and not an elk tag. Instead of getting a low number in the que and getting both. Or a guy online in front of you buying a deer tag while your elk tag sells out in 16 minutes. R

Youíre probably right that they would make even more of it went to a draw, but I think any kind of points system might turn some people off from Idaho. Who knows though.

Iím ready for ultimate disappointment tomorrow.  :chuckle:

For some, I would hunt Idaho More and be more into Idaho if they went to an all draw system. The current system for tags purchasing makes Idaho not worth the hassle for me. I might try again to get a late season whitetail tag but Iím Not driving to Idaho to get one. I would buy points every year though if they went that route.
