On my way home to Oregon after hunting in Montana I passed an Idaho Fish and Game check station. I had not been hunting in Idaho, but I wound up with a warning ticket because I did not stop. What was I supposed to do?


Stop. Anyone who has been hunting or fishing is supposed to stop. All hunters and anglers passing through Idaho are required to stop at Idaho Fish and Game check stations on their side of the road if they have been hunting, whether in Idaho or another state. Fish and Game has no way of knowing where they are coming from. A quick stop to let officials know that they have been hunting or fishing outside of Idaho will meet this requirement - even if no fish or game is present in the vehicle.
