Can I salvage a road killed duck or hawk?

Answer

No.  Migratory species, such as waterfowl, doves, crows, and protected wildlife and/or birds, such as eagles, hawks, owls and songbirds, may not be salvaged or possessed, nor can protected non-game animals and Threatened or Endangered wildlife.  All of these species encountered dead along the roadway should be reported on IDFG’s road kill data base at fishandgame.idaho.gov/roadkill, or by contacting your nearest IDFG office.

For a list of wildlife species you may not possess or salvage, go online to IDFG’s website at fishandgame.idaho.gov/roadkill, or contact your nearest IDFG office.
