Idaho’s Three Year Sport License Moves Through Legislature

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Legislation that would allow resident and non-resident hunters and anglers to buy a license good for three years has cleared a Senate committee. Idaho Department of Fish and Game officials say multi-year permits are a popular idea among sportsmen and could ultimately generate more revenue for the agency. The Senate Resources and Environment Committee unanimously approved the bill Wednesday, sending it to the Senate.

Agency Deputy Director Sharon Kiefer says internal surveys show a three-year license is popular among younger sportsmen, especially those between 18 and 24 years old. The agency doesn’t have control for setting license fees — so a 3-year permit offers little savings, though buyers can avoid dealer fees attached to annual permits. Agency officials estimate the 3-year license would generate more than $1.2 million in revenue.
