How long do you have to wait to hunt after buying you license and tag

Answer: 

There is no waiting period in Idaho.  Once you buy your license and tag, you can immediately go hunting (provided the season is open).

 

Years ago (30+) there was a waiting period of 24 hours to dissuade people from illegally killing a deer or elk and then going to the closest vendor and buying a license and/or tag.  With current forensic technology and real-time uploading of license purchasing information, we can easily prove a case when someone tries this unethical hunting trick.
