HUNTING – Discounts on nonresident tags for large predators in some units offered last will be continued through 2015, the Idaho Fish and Game Commission says.

The discounts will apply to black bear, mountain lion and wolf tags.

Black bear and mountain lion tags will be sold at the new discounted price of $41.75, a 78 percent decrease in the regular price of $186.00.

Gray wolf tags will continue to be sold at the discounted price of $31.75.

The panel agrees there’s a biological and public need to encourage participation in the hunting of mountain lion and black bear in certain units and in the hunting of wolves statewide as a rationale for the discount. The discounts will remain in effect through December 31, 2016.
