Definition of a "Hunter"

Question:

I would like to hunt the Magic Valley region this year as a non resident and bring my wife with me. She likes to go out with me but does not want to shoot anything but likes watching me hunt and walking with me. Is there a stipulation for non hunters in the field or will she be required to also purchase a non resident hunting license as well?

Answer:

According to the details of your question, she will be accompanying you while you hunt, but she will not be hunting.  Since she is not hunting, she is not required to have a hunting license.
