Good move, Idaho.
: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

Well I guess this takes care of any idea of hunting turkey here.

Nonresident licenses, permits, and tags sales temporarily suspended by F&G Commission
 

Nonresidents who purchase a 2020 hunting license may still apply for controlled hunts that will occur this fall.
At their April 4 meeting, the Idaho Fish and Game Commission adopted a rule that temporarily suspends the sale of several types of nonresident fishing and hunting licenses, tags, and permits.  The action is effective immediately and lasts until the rule is repealed consistent with relevant state of Idaho public health orders.

The Commission found this rulemaking supportive of the protection of public health consistent with the March 25 Idaho Department of Health and Welfare Order to Self-Isolate for the State of Idaho in response to COVID-19.

Fishing and hunting licenses, tags, and permits purchased by nonresidents prior to the April 4 Commission action are still valid for existing hunting, fishing, and trapping seasons, which remain in effect.

Nonresident hunting licenses along with currently available nonresident deer and elk tags are not included in the suspension. Nonresidents who purchase a 2020 hunting license may still apply for controlled hunts that will occur this fall.

The Commission action does not affect Idaho residents and there are no new limitations on resident purchase of licenses, tags, and permits or any changes to existing seasons.

Nonresidents and resident hunters, anglers, and trappers are reminded about state of Idaho guidance for outdoor recreation: follow social distancing directives of at least 6 feet, day trips are encouraged, check before heading out because many recreation sites are closed, and bring your own supplies. Outfitting and guiding are permissible with adherence to outdoor recreation guidelines.

The following is the list of nonresident items suspended from sale

Nonresident annual and three-year combination, fishing, and trapping licenses.
Nonresident Hunting Passports.
Nonresident junior annual and three-year fishing licenses.
Nonresident annual and 3-day small game hunting licenses.
Nonresident daily (including consecutive day) fishing licenses.
Nonresident 3-day fishing licenses with salmon/steelhead permits.
Nonresident nongame hunting licenses.
Nonresident game tags for black bear, turkey, mountain lion, and gray wolf, including nonresident junior mentored and nonresident disabled American veteran tags for these species.
Nonresident permits for black bear baiting, hound hunter, salmon, and steelhead.
Nonresident falconry meet permits.
Nonresident sport dog and falconry training permits.
Nonresident fishing tournament permits (suspension of sales of resident and nonresident tournament permits was implemented by Order 20-30).
Nonresident dog field trial permits.

The important part:

Fishing and hunting licenses, tags, and permits purchased by nonresidents prior to the April 4 Commission action are still valid for existing hunting, fishing, and trapping seasons, which remain in effect.

(if you already have a non-resident license and tag you can still hunt, also they are still allowing residents to buy tags and licenses)

Good move, Idaho.
The only reason for doing it ,is cause Washington can't seem to keep our seasons open.The surge of hunters from Washington who want to hunt.
If Washington would keep our seasons open ,Idaho wouldn't be forced to stop sales.If they where worried about covid19 they would shutdown seasons.It sounds like they have sold a significant amount already ,and allow them to hunt ,now that's a good move.It was forced on them due to Washington.
Two birds in the Bush is always better than one in the hand-that way you can always go to the Bush and hunt another day .conservation=Better hunting.

Are there religious exemptions though? If spring turkey is our religion?

I had already purchased my license and bear tag but didnít have my bait permits yet, as they have to be purchased in person. I normally just swing in and grab them when I happen to be in CDA. When they sent out the email last week I sent my check in, but apparently I was to late. Idfg says they donít have record of issuing them so when they receive my payment it will be retuned to me without permits. So now I have a license and tag but no bait permit.  :bash: Worst part is Iíve purchased tags and permits in Idaho for 15+ years, itís not like I am just part of the corona crush to find a place to hunt.

If it is open and you have your tags. Go.  Be responsible, be respectable, be quiet about. Try not to stampede the herd.

No coincidence that area around Coeur d'Alene is a local hot spot.

I would stay away until the covid 19 is under control if people head there a lot Iím sure it will cause problems. I was going to hunt there after I was done in eastern wa. Plans are on hold now just my 2 cents! It says may for Washington but they could extend it again! Maybe no spring season. Hopefully not.

The Idaho Fish and Game Commission on April 9 amended its previous decision to temporarily suspend sales of some nonresident licenses, tags, and permits to allow nonresident sales under specific situations, including:

    Allow nonresidents who bought a black bear tag prior to the temporary suspension on April 4 to also buy a bear bait permit, which is only available via mail and at department offices.
    Clarify that nonresidents who had a written Ė but unsigned Ė agreement with a licensed outfitter prior to April 4 are allowed to buy licenses, tags, permits for the outfitted trip. Written examples include: an agreement or letter signed by the outfitted client; an exchange of emails agreeing on trip terms; a written confirmation or reservation, or an exchange of emails with payment of a trip deposit. 
    Allow people who moved to Idaho to establish residency less than 6 months ago, or who have not gotten an Idaho driverís license as required within 90 days of Idaho residency, to still purchase a nonresident license, tag, or permit under these conditions: 

1. Person produces an Idaho driverís license, or Idaho Identification Card, issued by the Idaho Transportation Department, or a person produces two documents issued by a third party showing name and Idaho residence address, such as rent, mortgage receipts or utility bills.

2. Person signs a declaration demonstrating bona fide intent to become an Idaho resident.

People who are eligible to buy license and tags under these criteria must contact a Fish and Game regional office or headquarters via phone to arrange for the purchase of eligible nonresident items.

I was listening to the call this morning. Iím happy with the decision. I have baited the same locations for many years and will be making many non stop whirlwind trips to keep baits hot and hunt. No contamination threat from me.
