Hunting in Idaho: 4 Animals to Hunt Year-Round

By    |   Friday, 22 May 2015 02:18 PM

In Idaho, most animals can only be hunted during certain seasons legally. If you go hunting for moose in winter, for instance, it is illegal. The same goes for bear in the summer.

But there are four animals that can be hunted year-round in some parts of the state as long as you have a valid Idaho hunting license and tag and follow all state rules and regulations pertain to legal hunting in Idaho.

1. Gray Wolves
Wolves can be hunted year-round on private land in Idaho. On public land, the season varies dependent on what portion of the state in which you apply for a tag. You should also be aware that in many areas there is a harvest limit on the number of wolves that can be hunted and after this number is met in a particular zone, the season ends immediately. The Idaho Fish and Game Department maintains a comprehensive website on what is allowed – both where and when.

2. Badgers
Badger's can be hunted year-round in all regions of Idaho as long as you have the proper hunting permits.

3. Foxes
With the exception of the Clearwater and the Panhandle regions of Idaho, foxes can be hunted year round with the proper hunting permits. If you want to hunt for foxes in Clearwater or the Panhandle you will have to do so between October 15 and January 31.

4. Eurasian-collared Doves
The fourth species that can be hunted year-round in Idaho also doesn't require a tag, but you do need a proper hunting license to shoot. These birds are similar to mourning doves, but have slightly different coloring.

Eurasian collared doves are bigger and have a black collar on the top of their necks while mourning doves do not. They are also considered an invasive species in Idaho – the doves originally were found only in Europe and Asia, but have since expanded their range into North America where they are wrecking havoc on native species.
