Recreation

Question: Can non-residents recreate in Idaho, and can Idahoans recreate across the state?

Answer. Yes, but those considering doing so should consider carefully before traveling outside of your home county. The order allows individuals to “engage in outdoor activity” which includes but is not limited to walking, hiking, bicycling, or running. However, people recreating should follow these recommendations:

•   You must follow the Social Distancing Guidelines
•   Day trips near your home are strongly encouraged – such as hiking and biking. Minimize your travel distance from your home and spread out. If a trailhead is congested, consider finding another trail or going during off-peak hours.
•   Check before you go. Many campgrounds and trails may be closed. If you are going hunting or fishing, make sure to check Idaho Department of Fish and Game’s Seasons and Rules.
•   Bring all supplies you will need from home to avoid putting unnecessary strain on local grocery stores or convenient stores that serve the local population. Make sure you pack out all your trash and leave your space clean.
•   Outfitting and guiding is permissible so long as social distancing protocols and recreation guidelines are followed.

Hopefully it changes by mid-late may!
May my presence go unnoticed, may my shot be true, may the blood trail be short.

Amen

I was able to buy my license online today at noon and apply for non resident goat tag.  Just saying if you want your license get it this weekend.
Sales or through a third party company so I’m betting Monday will be your last chance

You can still buy licenses. Just can’t get the tags listed in the email.
:fire.:

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield
