Will a previous bow tag from Washington or Oregon meet the archery permit requirement?

Idaho's Rules:
"To participate in an archery only hunt a bowhunter must complete a Bowhunter Education Course or provide proof that a valid archery permit was previously held in Idaho or another state."
I understand Idaho requires an archery permit to hunt, but wanted to know if a previous bow tag from Washington or Oregon would meet the requirement for "valid archery permit", or do I need to take a class?
I have been bow hunting since 2001, and have some of my old tags that I would be happy to copy and send if necessary.
Thank You,


Yes.  That will allow you to purchase an Idaho archery validation so you can hunt in an archery-only season.
