Idaho reg / licensing question
« on: December 29, 2019, 04:44:19 PM »
So the idaho regs arent very clear on one thing.  They make mention of a furbearer license (i dont have the regs with me) somewhere in there, but i dont see anywhere that such a thing can be purchased.  Ive looked through all the licenses, tags and permits available, and read the furbearer regs.  I see no such thing as a fur bearer license available for purchase.  They classify bobcats as a fur bearer.  Whst do i need to legally harvest a bobcat in idaho if i happen to call one in next week?

If anybody who is knowledgable about idahos regs and licensing requirements can clarify for me it would be appreciated.

They donít have a fur bearer license, only a trapping license.  You are good to go with your NR hunting license.

A hunting license is all you need.  If you are taking them via trap, then you would need a trapping license.  For calling, just a hunting lic though...never heard of a fur bearer license in id

Perfect, thats what i was leaning toward.  Regs are worded a little oddly.  Ill be targeting bigger critters, but sure wouldnt want to pass on a bonus bobcat if i get lucky.

Those of you that know me can send a text or message on Instagram anytime. Politics may not make me want to be a part of Hunt Wa in 2020.

Small game license is not even listed as an option to buy for me online.  I have a non res hunting / 3 day fishing.  Looks like im set.

On another note, if anybody over there has a badger problem, id be glad to come whack one.   :tup:
