Idaho Fish and Game won’t auction more trophy hunting tags

Right now, Idaho has just one auction, for bighorn sheep. But legislators want the Idaho Department of Fish and Game to auction three tags each for deer, elk and antelope, and one tag each for moose, mountain goat and sheep. But the F&G commission has been against more auctions for wealthy hunters, even at the cost of legislative approval of hunting license fee increases for the department.

Lawmakers suggest new restrictions on Idaho hunting tag drawings

To address concerns that the drawings for the most-wanted big-game tags aren’t fair, Idaho legislators propose to have a private contractor conduct the drawings or to even ban Idaho Fish and Game employees and commissioners from entering. But critics say those options are costly and unnecessary, and that excluding F&G commissioners would be a disincentive to take the volunteer position.
