I tried to dial 1-800-824-3729 like my favorite blog recommended, but that didn't connect to buy a license.
1-800-824-3729 has been retired for a while as a place to buy licenses from us.
Idaho Fish and Game does have an 800-number for purchasing licenses, but the number above has been retired for this purpose.
If you'd like to call-in to buy your hunting or fishing licenses, applications, tags, or permits, then dial: 1-800-554-8685
Most all of the places you'll find this number are in older press releases or in well-meaning blogs or articles that are a little bit out-of-date.
