Hunters who received a controlled hunt for deer, elk, pronghorn, black bear and turkey must purchase the tag before Wednesday. Hunters can check if they received one through Fish and Game’s licensing system at https://idfg.idaho.gov/buy-online, according to a Idaho Fish and Game news release.

To create an online account, IDFG has put together a step-by-step guide at idfg.idaho.gov/tag/hunt/controlled/results. Hunters can also check their results and buy tags at Fish and Game offices, at license vendors, or by calling (800) 554-8685.

It is applicants’ responsibility to see if they drew a tag, and to purchase it by Wednesday, the news release states.

All controlled hunt tags that are not purchased by the deadline will be forfeited. Postcards notifying hunters that they received a controlled hunt tag have not been mailed yet because the controlled hunt drawing was later this year, according to a IDFG spokesman.

Hunters who drew a tag do not have to show a postcard to purchase it.
