Chat Live with Fish & Game about Licenses

Idaho Fish and Game wants to talk to hunters and anglers about hunting and fishing licenses.

Fish and Game will host a live chat from 12:15 to 1:45 p.m., Mountain Time, Wednesday, December 19. Participants will have an opportunity to ask questions, provide feedback and learn more about hunting and fishing license options and programs.

Fish and Game's licensing manager Craig Wiedmeier and enforcement chief Jon Heggen will answer questions and discuss possible future license options. They will also discuss Idaho's new mentored Hunting Passport program which allows an individual who is not hunter education certified to hunt while accompanied by a mentor.

They will also highlight "I Hunt Idaho" and "I Fish Idaho" web pages, Christmas gift ideas, advantages of lifetime licenses, and other related topics during the 1 1/2-hour chat.

"With the New Year fast approaching, we wanted to give our customers the opportunity to ask those difficult licensing questions and to discuss various options," Wiedmeier said. "We hope this chat will help answer those questions in a new, fun and interactive way."

Participants may also respond to licensing-related polls and see the results in real time. Participants can join the chat by visiting the chat link on Fish and Game's home page at
