No matter how you slice it, e-bikes are motorized vehicles in Idaho – whether you’re talking about lands that Idaho Fish and Game manages or provides access to, or federal lands managed by the Forest Service or Bureau of Land Management.

Residents needing a license, tag or permit should plan to buy them before or after Dec. 1.

Fish and Game hopes that this will avoid any frustrations from resident buyers who would likely face long lines, and/or delays when attempting to buy during the sale.
