Just like every year, this is the kick off article for Idaho's returned general season sold-out tags.

On the April 21 return sale date in Idaho at 10:00 am MT, there are a decent amount of tags available.

  • One tag can be purchased for any of the units listed in the table below (could pick up an elk and a deer tag)
  • Individual unit tag counts are a not-to-exceed limit.

Returned sold out tags

Any available tags will be listed on Idaho's 2022 returned tag page here.

If there are any returned tags, they will be available once a month until September, and then it switches to the second and fourth Thursday of each month at 10:00 a.m. MT. The list of available tags for that period will be made available two days before the sale opens at 10:00 a.m. These tags will be available online on a first come, first served basis and they will sell out quickly!

Below is a list of returned tag available dates:
