Can you purchase a over-the-counter bow tag in Idaho as a non-resident?

Answer

Yes you can. You must also purchase the archery permit to hunt in an archery only hunt. To purchase an achery permit, you will need to present to the department a certificate of completion in archery education issued by the department, or proof that such person holds the equivalent of such a certificate obtained either in Idaho or from an authorized agency or association in another state, or proof that such person has previously held a valid archery permit in Idaho or another state or country. Please contact our license section at 208-334-2592 if you have additional questions.
