Idaho: Hunter Privacy Legislation on the Move!

Tuesday, March 2, 2010

The House Resources and Conservation Committee approved House Bill 531aa 13 to 3.  This important legislation, sponsored by Representative Judy Boyle (R-Midvale), would amend Idaho’s existing law to limit public access to Fish and Game records of issued tags.  HB 531aa would also prohibit future harassment, intimidation and threats relating to the lawful taking and control of fish and wildlife. As the law currently stands any person or organization can contact Fish and Game and request the names of all people who have been issued tags and what type of hunting tag they have been issued.   

Groups like PETA and HSUS have shown how radical they can be when it comes to their attempts to end hunting.  Hunters have been at the forefront of conservation and the ultimate defenders of wildlife in this country for generations.  Hunter recruitment and retention are needed more than ever to protect America’s wildlife and habitat.  A father who introduces his daughter to hunting and the outdoors should not be subjected to crude and harassing acts, including potentially dangerous attacks that the radicals sometimes resort to.

During the 2009 hunting season, the names of all people who had a wolf tag were printed in a local paper and subsequently broadcasted nationally.  Although these hunters followed the law and direction by Idaho’s wildlife experts, they were incessantly harassed by anti-hunting groups.   It is the intention of Representative Boyle to prevent such future harassment and the NRA supports her effort to protect hunters’ rights to privacy and protection.

Hunters should be able to enjoy their favorite pastime and heritage without concern of harassment and intimidation because others do not approve.  

No action is needed at this time and continue to check your email and www.NRAILA.org for updates on HB 531aa.
