Gift licenses make great stocking stuffers

Give the gift of the great outdoors - a gift certificate for a 2017 fishing or hunting license makes an excellent stocking stuffer.

Fishing and hunting provide a good excuse to get outside, see the beauty of Idaho, and spend precious time with family and friends. For outdoor enthusiasts, there is a fishing or hunting season open throughout the year.

An adult may buy a license or tag for their minor child, but adult residents age 18 and over have to buy their own license because they need to show proof of residency. Gift certificates can be purchased and or redeemed for hunting and fishing licenses only at Fish and Game offices.

Several options and price ranges are available. Junior licenses sell from $7.25 for hunting and $13.75 for fishing, or purchase a 3-year junior combination license for $49.00. An adult hunting license costs $12.75 ($34.75 for a 3-year license), and fishing license costs $25.75 ($73.75 for a 3-year license). Consider a lifetime license for the gift that keeps on giving; they cost from $276.75 to $1,113.00 depending on the age of the recipient and type of license - hunting, fishing or combination. 

Another great gift idea for the hunters on your list are entries for Super Hunt drawings for individual deer, elk, antelope or moose hunts, and Super Hunt Combos for deer, elk, antelope and moose. Super Hunt tickets can be purchased in the hunters name at any Fish and Game license vendor or on-line.

Super Hunt entries are $6 each and Super Hunt Combo entries are $20 each.

Winners can participate in any open hunt in the state for deer, elk, pronghorn or moose with a tag for that species, including general hunts and controlled hunts. Super Hunt tags are in addition to other tags a hunter has applied for or may already hold.  All other rules of individual hunt apply.

No license is needed to enter and hunters can enter as many times as the like.  The drawings for the Super Hunts will be in June and August 2017.

Money raised by the Super Hunt drawings supports hunters and anglers access to private lands through the AccessYes! Program. To learn more about the Super Hunt drawings go to http://idfg.idaho.gov/superhunt.
