Dedicated Fishing Access Builders

Idaho Fish and Game staff are putting the finishing touches on improvements at Beaver Dick Park in eastern Idaho. Enhancements include replacement of the boat ramp, a new vault toilet, new docks and ADA improvements.

Our Engineering and construction crews work in all weather conditions to make sure access improvements are done as efficiently as possible. This service not only benefits anglers - but other outdoor recreationists, as well. If you enjoy recreating on lakes and rivers in Idaho and don't buy a hunting or fishing license - thank sportsmen and women across the state for giving you these facilities.

First year hunter, Drew a moose tag, first harvest ever! I am hooked!!

I took Hunters safety in April and put in for my moose tag at the end of April. Was drawn for a tag as was my boyfriend Jeff. He harvested his moose the end of October. I won my rifle a 270 marlin at a fundraiser. I harvested my moose on November 9, which ironically is my son's football number and also the number that I won the rifle on. It was a perfect hunt. I am a first time hunter and this was my first ever harvest. I am hooked and can't wait to make more memories with my children, friends, family and my great guide and boyfriend Jeff.

Video: Parachuting Beaver Short Found from 1950's

It wasn't exactly an unreleased Beatles tune or a missing Monet, but the much-talked-about film featuring parachuting beavers was recently rediscovered in Fish and Game's archives. The 1950s film "Fur for the Future" produced by the department highlighted Fish and Game's efforts to transplant muskrats, marten and beavers, which included parachuting beavers into the back-country.

Working with the Idaho Historical Society, we were able to find the film which was found in a mislabeled box.

The story about the missing film of parachuting beavers rippled through the Internet last year, and reached as far as a Swiss magazine article.

And, well, when you've got film with parachuting beavers, you've got a story, and here it is.
