Don't forget to file game harvest reports
October 22, 2012
Hunters are required to file a report on their
deer, elk and pronghorn hunts within 10 days
after harvest or within 10 days after the end of
the hunt if they did not harvest. Hunters are
required to file a report for each tag they
bought whether they went hunting or not.
To make it easier to file a report, Fish and
Game has a 24-hour, toll-free phone line to
speak to a live operator when filing reports.
Call 1-877-268-9365 to file reports 24 hours a
day, seven days a week.
Or go to the Fish and Game Website to file a
To file reports, hunters need to know their tag
numbers or hunting license numbers, the number
of days they hunted, the game management units
they hunted in, the date they harvested, and the
number of antler points on the animal they
harvested, or the length of the horns for
pronghorns in inches.
These harvest data are valuable to Idaho Fish
and Game for managing big game populations.
Hunters who have not filed their reports will be
sent a reminder postcard in mid-November. Some
hunts are still open at that time, a few until
the end of December. Reports should be filed
when the hunt is over.
Harvest data for past years is available on the
Fish and Game website at:

report please call the Fish and Game Wildlife
