There are plenty of opinions on how much hunting pressure is in the West right now vs. the last few decades. This topic of Historical Idaho Deer & Elk Tag Numbers is ripe for a discussion with the Idaho Fish & Game Deer and Elk Coordinator, Toby Boudreau. Robby and Toby dive into the actual number of resident and non-resident deer and elk tags sold in Idaho between 2005 and 2022.  The Historical Idaho Deer & Elk Tag Numbers may (or may not) surprise you. They also discuss other factors that might be influencing the perception of increased hunting pressure in some places.

Robby Denning
Robby Denning started hunting mule deer in the late 1970’s, only missing one season in 35 years. At 25, he gave up the pursuit of all other big-game to focus on taking the best bucks possible. He began hunting the West on a DIY budget hunting an average of 30 days a year for mule deer. Robby loves the hunt as much as the kill and the entire process from research to scouting to hunting. He’s killed four bucks over 200 inches in the last 15 seasons, mostly on easily-obtained tags. He owns a public-land scouting service and runs a private-land outfitting business helping other hunters in their pursuit of deer and elk. Robby has scouted and hunted literally thousands of square miles of mule deer country and brings a wealth of knowledge about these experiences with him. To him, the weapon of choice is just a means-to-an-end and will hunt with bow, rifle, or muzzleloader – whatever it takes to create an opportunity to take a great mule deer. He is also the author of "Hunting Big Mule Deer" available on Amazon. Robby believes all of creation is from God for man to manage, respect, and through which to know its Creator
