Is a life time hunting license still valid after moving to another state?

I am considering obtaining a life time hunting license for Idaho, but with my work there is always a chance that I may have to move out of state. Will my life time hunting license still be valid if I am no longer a resident?

Answer

  • Yes, the license will still be valid:

     

  • Lifetime combination, hunting and fishing licenses authorize all privileges associated with a corresponding annual license.

  • These licenses are valid for the lifetime of the license holder and are available to all residents of Idaho.

  • If a lifetime certificate holder moves out of Idaho, they will continue to receive an annual license, but they will have to pay nonresident tag and permit fees.

  • The lifetime certificate does not include tags and permits.

  • Lifetime certificates can be purchased at Idaho Fish and Game headquarters and regional offices.

  • After the first year you can renew your license online from the Fish and Game Website.
