2012 IDFG Licensing Live Chat

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.

The “I Hunt Idaho” and “I Fish Idaho” web pages, Christmas gift ideas, advantages of lifetime licenses, and other related topics will be highlighted during the 1 1/2-hour chat.

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.
