There is not only special tags, but also limited time. Most of these hunt only last about a week. Hunting for ten days. That stinks! That is why I like archery season. You can go when ever, where ever and you have a month to do it. At least that's the way it is on the south side of the creek.
With a general elk archery tag, general deer rifle tag, cougar tag and bear tag. I can hunt from August first through November almost non stop. Now that's is hunting!
