The Idaho Fish & Game Department has revised its proposed fee increase to make it more “modest,” the department announced today. “In the light of tough economic times, Idaho Fish and Game has scaled back a proposed revenue increase to an overall 15 percent instead of 20 percent,” the department said in a press release. “Under the new proposal, the resident combination hunting and fishing license would not go up at all. Other changes from the original proposal include deer and elk tags, fishing tournament permit fees, controlled hunt application fees and the daily fishing license. A deer tag would go up just two bucks, instead of the proposed $5, and an elk B tag would go up $6. Nonresident hunting licenses also would go up $13.25, instead of $15.25 proposed earlier. Nonresident elk and deer tag increases also were scaled back.”
