TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) - Terry Adolfson, from Nampa, started camping out at the Jerome Fish and Game office for a highly sought after elk hunting tag on Friday.

He said people were already lined up at the Fish and Game office on Thursday in Nampa.

Adolfson was first in line in Jerome.

While it was an interesting weekend camping out with family in the heat of the weekend, he was able to get his tag for the Sawtooth zone Monday morning.

“It was a long wait, but for 30 days of entertainment,” Adolfson said. “My wife told me earlier today she wouldn’t have sat that long for a good concert ticket. I said, yeah, that last three hours and this lasts 30 days so it was worth it.”

Other than the Adolfson’s, hunters started arriving at the Fish and Game office for tags Sunday night.
