HUNTING -- Idaho is looking to raise resident hunting and fishing license fees for the first time since 2005, but the plan in the works from the Department of Fish & Game would give loyal hunters or anglers who buy a license every year a break: They could “lock in” their fees at 2013 rates by buying a license every year, continuously, reports Betsy Russell, the S-R's reporter in Boise. The fee-increase bill hasn’t  been introduced, but the piece letting Fish & Game discount licenses was introduced today in the House Resources Committee.
