Updated Idaho Wildlife Management Area App and Maps

December 12, 2013 - 12:43pm -- idfg-pbond

Looking for a great place to fish, hunt, or watch wildlife? Check out one of Idaho's 32 Wildlife Management Areas (WMA).   Each WMA has been set aside to protect wildlife habitat and provide the public access for fish and wildlife related recreation. Maps specific to each WMA have been revised and are available on the IDFG WMA webpage http://fishandgame.idaho.gov/public/wildlife/wma/.  Here you will also find information on how to get to the WMA and what kind of wildlife viewing, hunting, fishing and other activities are unique to each WMA. 

 

Also, check out the new WMA viewer app http://fishandgame.idaho.gov/ifwis/maps/wma/.  This map application allows you to interactively discover WMAs near you and explore the land within each WMA. It also provides all of the same information as the IDFG WMA webpage, just click on one of the WMAs on the map and an information box will appear.

 

Do you have to have a WMA permit to hunt waterfowl or is that just for pheasant?

I have read in the regulations and tried to find more information on it but I may be looking in the wrong spot. All that I could find in the regs was that to hunt pheasant on WMA land you needed your WMA Upland Game Permit. I saw nothing for an upland game waterfowl permit. I just don't want to hunt there without it and get in trouble if I am supposed to have it.
