Idaho's beavers, bobcats, river otters and other furbearers provide recreational opportunities, viewing enjoyment, and an economic return from fur pelts. Furbearers provide not only recreational, harvest, and aesthetic values, but also social, cultural, scientific, and genetic values. Furbearers and their harvest are managed in order to benefit wildlife populations and to ensure a long-term return from the animals to humans.
These furbearers may also be hunted: Badger, bobcat, red fox
The coyote, striped skunk, spotted skunk, long-tailed weasel, raccoon and ermine, also considered furbearers, are classified as predatory wildlife and are open to hunting or trapping.
There is no open season for lynx, wolverine, or fisher.
