Can Fish and Game officers hunt while on the job?

Answer

Idaho Department of Fish and Game has an official policy regarding hunting and fishing activities.

All Department personnel are encouraged to participate in hunting and fishing activities and become familiar with the fish and wildlife resources and the areas of the State that support these activities so they might be better able to discuss hunting and fishing intelligently with the license-buying public.

Occasional hunting and fishing activity, with a primary emphasis on familiarizing employees with specific areas or training activities, is permitted during duty hours.
