What does the state do with the hunting and fishing fees?


Hunting and fishing fees, otherwise known as license dollars, help fund Idaho Fish and Game. License dollars make up about 40 percent of the Fish and Game budget.  The rest comes primarily from federal grants. About 16 percent of the federal money is generated by excise taxes on hunting and fishing equipment sold in Idaho.  Idaho Fish and Game receives no general tax revenue.
