I want to give my grandkids hunting and fishing licenses for Christmas - I want it to be a surprise, and I don't have the documentation it takes to buy a license. How do I do this?

Answer

It is simple and easy to make this kind of gift, and it works for lifetime licenses as well as annual licenses. Every Idaho Fish and Game office will sell you a gift certificate, which can be redeemed by the giftee at Fish and Game offices only, anytime within one year. Fish and Game cannot accept credit cards. Licenses and tags for 2011 went on sale December 1, but the new licenses are not valid until January 1.
