Regulating the outfitting and guiding industry in Idaho 

Our goal is to properly regulate the outfitting and guiding industry in Idaho for the purpose of safeguarding the health, safety, and welfare of the public. By doing so, we contribute to the conservation of Idaho's fish, wildlife, and natural resources.

Our license search provides information on all licensed outfitters including address, telephone numbers, types of activities and services they provide, and where they operate. If you have additional questions, please contact us!
