Status of Rulemaking

This negotiated rulemaking is published in the April 6, 2022, Idaho Administrative Bulletin.

Those interested in participating in the negotiated rulemaking process must identify themselves to the agency via email to or mail to Amber Christofferson, P.O. Box 25, Boise, ID 83707, by April 27, 2022. One or more meetings to conduct negotiated rulemaking will be scheduled and posted on the agency website should a reasonable number of persons respond to this notice. 

Upon conclusion of negotiated rulemaking, any unresolved issues, all key issues considered, and conclusions reached during the negotiated rulemaking will be addressed in a written summary. The summary will be made available on the agency website and to interested persons who contact the agency.


This rulemaking relates to the commercial and non-commercial importation, possession, release, sale, or salvage of wildlife. The rules under consideration govern import and transport permit issuance, captive wildlife, disease of captive wildlife, recovery, possession and sale of wildlife parts, prohibition on possession, importation and transportation of deer/elk/moose carcasses or parts from areas known to have animals with chronic wasting disease, private parks and commercial wildlife facilities, and operation of shooting preserves for domestic game birds. Agency review indicates renewal of current rules is appropriate, with some editing and reorganization to improve clarity and reduce duplication.
