CLEARWATER TRIBUNE HOME

It's time to apply for a second chance at the hunt of a lifetime.
Entries in the second Super Hunt and Super Hunt Combo drawing must be received at the Fish and Game headquarters by Aug. 11 with the drawing set for mid-August.
A "Super Hunt Combo" entry and entries for two elk, two deer, and two pronghorn hunts along with one moose hunt will be drawn. The entry period for the second drawing is June 2 through Aug. 11.
So what's a Super Hunt?
It is a fund-raising drawing for 40 big game tags. The tags are handed out to winners in two drawings. Entries are drawn for elk, deer, pronghorn and moose tags. Winners can participate in any open hunt in the state for deer, elk, pronghorn or moose. That includes general hunts and controlled hunts.
Hunters can take an animal or animals on their Super Hunt or Super Hunt Combo tags in addition to any general season or controlled hunt tags they also hold. All other rules of individual hunts apply.
The special drawings began in 2004 as a way to raise money for the Access Yes! Program, which helps assure hunter and angler access to and across private lands by compensating willing landowners.
The first entry costs $6;
additional entries for the same species cost $4 each when purchased at the same
time. Super Hunt Combo entries cost $20 for one; additional entries are $16 when
purchased at the same time. Enter at license vendors, all Fish and Game offices,

entry order forms and mail them to: Fish and Game License Section,
