Twin Falls Legislator Proposes Cheaper Hunts For Disabled Vets

It may soon be a lot cheaper for disabled veterans who live outside Idaho to hunt and fish in Idaho.

A bill introduced Wednesday in the House Resources and Conservation Committee would give disabled veterans who are not Idaho residents the same rates for hunting licenses and tags as disabled Idaho veterans pay.  The bill was introduced by Republican Representative Jim Patrick of Twin Falls.  The bill, if passed by the Idaho legislature, would allow a disabled veteran from another state to purchase a deer tag for $9-dollars instead of the regular out of state rate of $300.  An elk tag would cost just $14.75 instead of $415 dollars.   The only requirement would be that the veterans participate in a hunt sponsored by a qualified nonprofit organization working with disabled veterans.
