At their April 12, 2022, meeting, the Outfitters and Guides Licensing Board finalized the calculations for the uncapped elk zones and general deer unit hunts that were changed by the Idaho Fish & Game Commission in September 2021. Tag Designation letters for these changed hunts were both e-mailed and mailed (via US Postal Service First Class mail) after the Board meeting to outfitters who are licensed for these changed hunts.

To see the designation calculations for each changed hunt, click "2022 Changed Hunt Calculations" at the top of the list on the left hand side of this page.
