New Prices on Hunting and Fishing Licenses Not in Effect Until May 1
The Idaho Fish and Game department reminded sportsmen this week that they can purchase their hunting and fishing licenses at a saving of 20 to 33 percent if they buy them before May 1st. The 1963 Legislature boosted almost all license fees effective May 1. Licenses are already on sale and the department director John R. Woodworth, said they may be purchased as the old rate until May 1. At that time the resident hunting and fishing combination license will increase from $5 to $6. Resident fishing license purchased separately will increase from $3 to $4 but the resident hunting license, purchased separately remains the same $3 per year. The biggest boost is in the non-resident combination hunting and fishing license. It goes up from $75 to $100. Nonresident fishing fee increase from $13 to $15 for a season pass and the five-day non-resident license now selling at $4 will be replaced by a seven-day license costing $5. The so-called tourist license will continue to be available at $2 for the first day $1 for each consecutive day thereafter. A new type license costing $5 will be issued to non-residents for the shooting of nongame animals including jackrabbits, bobcats, coyotes and other unprotected species of animals and birds.
