Spring turkey hunters urged to apply early

The last day to apply for the spring turkey controlled hunt is March 1. This is also the same day, Idaho Fish and Game will be launching a new license and tag sales system.

“For the first time since 2007, the department is upgrading its license issuance system, which is a major undertaking,” said Michael Pearson, Fish and Game administration bureau chief. “We’ve trained our staff and vendors on the new terminals and issuance process, but it may take a little while before everyone becomes familiar with the new system.”

Idaho Fish and Game sells approximately 1.9 million licenses, tags and controlled hunt applications annually, all of which is done through the contracted licensing system.
