Electronic glitch stalls Idaho leftover tag sales

HUNTING -- Idaho Fish and Game’s vendor, Active Network that provides the online licensing system, experienced technical difficulties Wednesday because of the large volume of transactions involving leftover tag purchases and was forced to shut down. 

Idaho Fish and Game forwarded an apology from Active Network, summarized here:

Active extends our formal apology to IDFG and all adversely affected sportsmen/women for the period of unavailability of the IWILD system for transaction processing that was experienced after the sale of leftover tags for controlled hunts commenced at 10:00am MDT on Wednesday, August 6, 2014.  Our records indicate that the outage began at 10:10am MDT and was resolved by Active at 10:34am MDT.  We know that the timing of this outage was such as to cause great frustration and inconvenience to sportsmen/women attempting to obtain leftover tags and consequently to IDFG and its stakeholders. We profoundly regret, accept responsibility, and apologize to IDFG and all adversely affected sportsmen/women for this untimely and highly inconvenient service disruption.
