New Minimum Hunter age in Idaho [big game hunting]

I keep hearing rumblings that Idaho will be allowing hunters age 10 and older the opportunity to hunt Big Game in 2014 and moving forward providing they have passed a Hunter Safety Course. Is this true?


The 2014 legislature approved changing the minimum age to hunt big game from 12 down to 10.  This goes into effect on July 1, 2014.  The 2014 fall big game hunts will be affected.
