Is a permit required for hunting on the Nez Perce Reservation?
Yes, there are pheasant hunting opportunities in Nez Perce County. Pheasants occur in the agricultural portions of the county. Please note that almost all of the pheasant habitat in the county occurs on private property and, therefore, requires landowner permission. Additionally, there are some Access Yes properties that are open to pheasant hunting. Also, the Nez Perce Indian Reservation covers a large portion of the county. The Nez Perce Tribe does not sell hunting permits to non-tribal hunters or allow non-tribal hunters to hunt on any tribal property. However, a large portion of the reservation is privately owned by non-tribal members. This property can be hunted just like any other private property in Idaho (as long as you have landowner permission and a valid Idaho hunting license).
