365 day licenses

I've never understood why Idaho is so far behind the curve as to offering 365 day licenses. If I want to ice fish this winter as a non resident why do I have to buy 2 full price licenses within a couple month period? If I am paying full price for something I should receive full price value for that item. It is a serious deterrent to making Idaho a regular hunting or fishing destination for me and many of my friends. You should follow Utahs lead on this one and offer a 365 day license.

Answer

The Idaho Department Fish and Game (Department) has looked at the concept of a 365 day license. After researching this concept, the Department has made the decision to keep licenses based on a calendar year.
