Description

This rulemaking was initiated to do the following:

  • Establish the same validation and attachment requirements for all game birds that require a tag.
    • This will provide consistency among game bird tags and simplify validation requirements for the hunting public.
  • Eliminate permit requirements for grouse (i.e., sage-grouse) if a game tag is required by statute, in the future.
    • This would simplify licensing requirements for the hunting public and help wildlife managers improve sage-grouse population management.
  • Establish harvest report requirements for swan.
    • Mandatory reporting is necessary to determine species and age of birds harvested.
    • This is a condition that needs to be met for Idaho to hold a swan hunt.
