11 authorized license vendors, a certificate of completion in hunter education
12 issued by the department under the hunter education program or proof that he

15 (b) Archery education. On and after January 1, 1994, nNo person shall be
16 issued an archery permit, or otherwise participate in any hunt using archery,
17 unless that person presents to the department a certificate of completion in

19 the equivalent of such a certificate obtained either in Idaho or from an
20 authorized agency or association in another state, or proof that such person
21 has previously held a valid archery permit in Idaho or another state.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
The Idaho Department of Fish and Game has established "Short
Range" big game seasons in some areas of the state. This
legislation clarifies that to participate in one of these hunts a
person must satisfy the requirements of Idaho Code 36-411 (b).
There is no appreciable fiscal impact. It is possible that a
small number of persons might not participate in this hunt but
they would probably participate in other hunts and no appreciable
resulting loss of revenue would occur.
