Residency requirements

With the introduction of our new 3-year licenses, you will only need to complete this certification once every 3 years, unless you choose to have an annual license issued or if you choose to purchase an annual resident Sportsman’s Package instead. The 3-year licenses are valid for 3 calendar years and expire on December 31st of the third year. Please note that if you are the holder a resident 3-year license and you move outside of Idaho during the life of that license, your resident license will need to be exchanged for a nonresident license.
