Archery and muzzleloader hunters must buy a permit by Friday to hunt this season.
The Idaho Department of Fish and Game will cut off the sale of archery and muzzleloader permits thereafter to prevent hunters who are inexperienced with the primitive weapons from hurrying to buy permits because they have been unsuccessful in earlier hunts.
Idaho archery and muzzleloader groups requested the cutoff several years ago to raise the proficiency level of those hunters, according to the department.
The permits can be purchased at any licensed vendor.
