Can I salvage a road killed duck or hawk?


No.  Migratory species, such as waterfowl, doves, crows, and protected wildlife and/or birds, such as eagles, hawks, owls and songbirds, may not be salvaged or possessed, nor can protected non-game animals and Threatened or Endangered wildlife.  All of these species encountered dead along the roadway should be reported on IDFG’s road kill data base at, or by contacting your nearest IDFG office.
For a list of wildlife species you may not possess or salvage, go online to IDFG’s website at, or contact your nearest IDFG office.
