It's not too late to apply for a second chance at the hunt of a lifetime.
Entries in the second Super Hunt drawing must be received at the Fish and Game headquarters by Aug. 11 with the drawing set for mid-August.
One winner will be drawn for a super hunt combination, Super Hunt Combo" and one for moose. In addition, two entries each for elk, deer and pronghorn hunts will be drawn. The entry period for the second drawing runs through Aug. 11.
So what's a Super Hunt?
A Super Hunt is a fundraising drawing for 40 big game tags. The tags are handed out to winners in two drawings. Entries are drawn for elk, deer, and 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.
