Is there a waste of game law for jackrabbits like there is for big game?


Waste laws only apply to game animals, except black bears, mountain lions and gray wolves.  These laws also apply to all game birds and game fish.  A complete list of Idaho’s wildlife and their classification can be found in the Idaho Administrative Procedures Act (IDAPA) Because jackrabbits are classified as predators, they are not covered under waste laws.  Remember though, Cottontail rabbits are classified as upland game animals; Therefore seasons, bag limits and waste laws apply.
