Tags with a hunting passport

Question:

Does the hunting passport program allow a first-time hunter to purchase a tag? Example: my daughter has not completed hunter safety yet. Can I buy her a tag and can she fill it?

Answer:

Sorry for the delay in responding.

Yes.  If your daughter is 12 years of age or older and has not completed hunter education, she can purchase a Hunting Passport and a deer tag. More information on the program can be found  http://fishandgame.idaho.gov/public/licenses/?getPage=332.

  • Must be 12 years of age to hunt big game; 10 years of age to hunt turkey and sandhill crane; 8 years of age to hunt other game birds, upland game animals, furbearers, predatory or unprotected species. 
  • Holders of a Hunting Passport must purchase general season tags and all permits and validations to participate in the hunt.  
  • All hunting rules, seasons and weapon restrictions apply to the holder of a Hunting Passport.
