Status of Rulemaking

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

One or more meetings to conduct negotiated rulemaking will be scheduled should a reasonable number of persons respond to this notice. 

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.

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 criteria for determining a feeding emergency, and rules governing feeding operations and prohibiting private feeding within a designated CWD management zone. Agency review indicates renewal of current rules is appropriate, with some editing and reorganization to improve clarity and reduce duplication.

Additionally, the negotiated rulemaking will consider incorporation of Idaho State Department of Agriculture Rules Governing Private Feeding of Big Game Animals (IDAPA 02.04.25) into IDAPA 13.01.18 to improve clarity and reduce duplication.
