June 19, 2019

Beginning in 2019, leftover tags will be available exclusively online. You will not be able to purchase leftover tags at ODFW offices. This step-by-step guide will show you how to purchase leftover tags from the controlled hunt drawing.  In 2019, leftover tags will be available for purchase beginning Aug. 1 at 10 a.m. 

There are 15 leftover spring bear tags for The 760T Minam-Imnaha hunt. THIS IS A YOUTH HUNT. There are no other leftover tags for 2020 spring bear. NEW FOR 2020 - Leftover tags are no longer available as an additional tag. If you were successful in the spring bear draw you can't purchase a leftover tag.
