Landowners who provide access to or through their land for hunters and anglers are eligible to apply for Access Yes! funds. The Idaho Department of Fish and Game program will have more than $40,000 available to compensate landowners in the Salmon Region this year. Access Yes! improves hunter and angler access to or through private lands by compensating willing landowners. Landowners are also shielded from liability. Last year nine landowners in the Salmon Region participated in the program, receiving a combined total of $53,214. Access Yes! is a cooperative effort among the Idaho Department of Fish and Game, the Idaho Department of Agriculture, and the Idaho Fish and Game Advisory Committee. Landowner applications will be accepted until February 15. For more information or for bid applications, go to http://fishandgame.gov or contact the Salmon Region Fish and Game office at 756-2271.
