Hunter reports are critical to effective big game management, and hunters are needed to do their part.

Now that October big game seasons are over, Idaho Fish and Game needs all big game hunters to take a few minutes to fill out their mandatory hunter reports regardless of whether they harvested.

Hunters can help effective wildlife management and do it quickly and easily at or by calling (877) 268-9365. The phone option is available 24 hours per day and seven days per week. Have your hunting tag number when calling. If you don’t have it handy, you can find it in your online account.

If you plan to keep hunting, remember everyone who bought big game tags must report so wildlife managers can get critical information needed for managing big game herds and proposing future hunting seasons. If harvest information is lacking, biologists have to err on the side of caution, which typically means more restrictive hunting seasons.
