Hunting and Fishing: Keeping Herds Healthy
Licensing fees are an important part of financing the management and protection of wildlife and their habitats. But that’s not the only way that hunting and fishing are helping our wildlife:
- Collected revenues go to the protection and reintroduction of native species, including lynx, boreal toad, and greater sage grouse.
- Hunting keeps herd numbers at a level the habitat can support, keeping our wildlife resources and herds healthy and sustainable.
- Helping to finance the identification and protection of species that are deemed “of special concern, threatened or endangered”.
- Hunting is necessary in maintaining healthy and diverse populations of wildlife.
