Non residents idaho youth question.
« on: March 10, 2024, 04:42:49 PM »
How old does a youth hunter have to be in Idaho to hunt on there own?  My oldest daughter turns 17 this year and I was wondering if she could sit on a bear bait on her own this spring.  I found this online so I'm guessing she'd be stuck with me.

My understanding is that only pertains to the “mentored” tag… ie she hasn’t passed hunters education yet it’s a 1 year exemption. She is good to go if she is a regularly licensed hunter I’m pretty sure!

EDIT: looks like Non Resident youth is different… looks like you may have to be together :sry:

Pretty sure they have to be 12 to hunt on their own. Was looking to find it, but I couldn’t. But I have looked it up before and that’s the way I understand it.

Can't hunt solo on a Jr mentor license either.

 :yeah: Must be accompanied by an adult hunter with a valid license/tag for that area.

I didn't see any other license option other than the mentored one.  She's definitely passed hunter's Ed.

I bought my daughter a mentored deer tag for the same reason (didn't see any other youth option) and she passed hunters ed 2 years ago. It's kind of a mess because I didn't buy a tag this year, so I either need to get a leftover tag later that is turned in or she will have to hunt with my cousin or buddy that are residents.

The only youth option is the Jr mentored. If you want to pay full price I think you can buy a regular nonresident tag but with the jr mentor they have to be within normal talking distance of their mentor.

If you want her to be able to hunt on her own then you need to buy her a full price license & tag rather than Jr/mentored, it is legal to hunt alone at the age of 12 in Idaho.

The language above says "license holder", not tag holder, so couldn't you just buy a hunting license to be able to hunt with her?

They have to be accompanied by someone who had a valid tag for that species. Just having a license doesn’t cut it.

She will need to be with you in the field and you also have to have a tag.
