Idaho’s Hunters and Anglers Could get “Loyalty Discounts”

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — The Department of Fish and Game won House approval to give hunters and anglers a break on their licenses, provided they buy them year after year. Representatives voted 61-6 Wednesday for the plan allowing the Fish and Game Commission more flexibility to offer so-called “loyalty discounts.” The measure now heads to the Senate. Idaho’s wildlife agency says many hunters now buy licenses only sporadically. Consequently, its leaders want to provide an incentive — in the form of a discount — to people who buy them in consecutive years. The agency forecasts more than $300,000 in additional revenue annually, on fishing licenses alone. Foes doubted whether the measure will boost revenue and questioned if Fish and Game really should expand the number of sporting men and women competing for Idaho game.
