I smell chaos brewing

Wonder how many first timers are going to try this year...

Wish they gave preference for some of us OGs :chuckle:

 :hello: first timer here, looking forward to the disappointment

Anyone know what order elk zones sold out last year?? I keep hearing about the, "one that sells out fastest every year" and have a couple assumptions...but nothing concrete

Can’t remember and probably won’t matter to be honest, they all go pretty fast when you’re at the back of line waiting till 6:30 PM to get a chance. Just have a good number of choices you feel good about and don’t worry about what others are doing.

Quick question,  I  cant seem to find in the regs..

Does Idaho allow straw purchases for OTC tags or does each person in a group need to be present for purchase?

I've heard that you can buy for others, but only hearsay.

I bought for a buddy here in town last year and will again this year. Its a loop hole but man the way they do this is pretty crappy. I would rather see a draw where at least you can put in as a group
The mountains are calling and I must go

Yeah over the phone, in person or login to their account. I was under the impression he meant buying tags for everyone at once to guarantee their group all got a tag. “Straw purchase”

I'm assuming the context is one dude is trying the "in-person" loophole and trying to buy for the group. While they don't allow group apps, if one guy goes in person and buys 4 tags back to back at the counter it might work out that way. :dunno:

That is correct. 1 guy can buy for his group back to back to back. So if you are standing in line behind 4 dudes you might actually be behind 120 dude or more.

Almost all the tags went to non-web sales last year.  I heard they expect the web portal to be much better this year tho they aren’t making promises.

You guys actually believe that Idaho sells out that fast on the first?  I hear half the tags have already been designated to friends and family of the Idaho rich and famous  :tinfoil:

It stopped being a secret years ago..
Thus the pick your zone requirements.
But I do wish I could go back to the 90s when I started hunting over there
Oh the good days.
