Idaho Considers Fee Increases

January 8, 2009.

The Idaho Department of Fish and Game is submitting a proposal for $6.9 million in hunting and fishing fee increases to the Idaho legislature. If it passes, sportsmen will be paying more for the privilege to hunt and fish in Idaho.

Proposed fee increases range from $1.75 for a resident hunting license to $350 for a non-resident sheep, goat, or moose tag.

If the fee increases are approved, they will be valid for the 2010 season.

However, the proposal was formulated before the current economic collapse, and the legislature may very well hesitate to impose these additional costs on sportsmen given the current situation.

Money from any fee increases would be used for activities such as increasing hatchery production of fish, stocking pheasants, and securing private land access for sportsmen.
