Idaho Fish and Game wants to talk to hunters and anglers about hunting and fishing licenses.
Fish and Game hosted a live chat from 12:15 to 1:45 p.m., Mountain Time, Wednesday, December 19. Participants had an opportunity to ask questions, provide feedback and learn more about hunting and fishing license products and programs.
Fish and Game’s licensing manager Craig Wiedmeier and enforcement chief Jon Heggen will answer questions and discuss Idaho’s new Mentor Hunt Program, a program that allows an individual who is not hunter education certified to hunt while accompanied by a mentor.
Participants also responded to licensing-related polls and saw the results in real time.
“With the New Year fast approaching, we wanted to give our customers the opportunity to ask those difficult licensing questions and to discuss various options,” Wiedmeier said. “We hope this chat will help answer those questions in a new, fun and interactive way.”
**Editorial Note: A few of the answers were mildly edited for clarification after the live chat event.

I am a member of a federal recognized tribe from another state, but a resident of Idaho. I purchased my Idaho hunting and fishing combo licence, and the hunting permit to the Couer d'Alene reservation. The Cd'A tribe says I can hunt with their dates for the season, and only need to hunt with the permit. What are the restrictions to hunt on the reservation and are there special tags to use?
