Idaho Point System
- Point System: No point system in place
- You can draw the very first year you apply for any tag in Idaho.
- When applying in Idaho, applicants can only apply for one species in the moose, sheep, mountain goat category. This should be encouraging as only being able to apply for one species and having to pre-buy the non-resident hunting license makes the drawing odds for moose, sheep, and mountain goat THE BEST IN THE WEST!
- Shiras Moose odds are typically better than 1 in 15 in most of the top units
- If not applying for moose, sheep, or mountain goat, you may apply for any or all species in the elk, deer, antelope category.
- If successful WTA has an extensive outfitter network to help get you with the right outfitter.
