ID: Give the gift that lasts all year
It’s that time of year again, and here’s an idea for the
outdoors person on your list.
Go to any Idaho Fish and Game regional office around the state
and buy them a gift certificate for a 2012 hunting and fishing
license. They make good stocking stuffers.
A gift certificate is the best way to get them their hunting and
fishing license for Christmas. Adult residents age 18 and over have
to buy their own license because they need to show proof of
Idaho Fish and Game gift certificates can be redeemed only at
Fish and Game regional offices.
Several options and price ranges are available. Lifetime
licenses cost from $276.75 to $1,113.00, depending on the age of
the recipient. Season licenses sell from $7.25 for junior hunting
to $117.25 for the Sportsman’s Package. A hunting license costs
$12.75, and a fishing license costs $25.75.
The Sportsman’s Package includes hunting and fishing licenses,
tags for deer, elk, bear, mountain lion, turkey, salmon and
steelhead as well as archery and muzzleloader permits. That is a
savings of nearly a $70 over buying the items separately.
If playing a game of chance is more your style, the Idaho Fish
and Game also offers tickets for Super Hunt drawings for individual
deer, elk, pronghorn or moose hunts, and Super Hunt Combos for
deer, elk, pronghorn and moose. The money raised from the purchase
of these tickets goes to the Access Yes! program. The tickets can
be purchased at any license vendor.
Super Hunt entries cost $6 for the first one, and $4 for each
additional entry purchased during the same transaction. Super Hunt
Combo tickets cost $20 for the first one, and $16 for each
additional entry purchased during the same transaction.
The drawings for the all Super Hunts will be in June and August
For more information, or to purchase gift certificates, stop by any
Fish and Game regional office or headquarters in Boise.
