GH 3: Learn the Hunting Regulations and the Animal You Plan to Hunt

On today’s podcast, we focus on learning how to break down the hunting regulations into bite-size pieces so you won’t be overwhelmed by too much information. I know as a hunter education instructor that reading the game laws has prevented many people from moving forward in their pursuit to be a hunter.

If you are faced with this challenge, hopefully, this podcast will boost your confidence, or at least encourage you to ask questions so you can get on to the next step in learning how to hunt.

I would suggest you click the link below and download a copy of the 2019 – 2020 Idaho Big Game Regulation or pick up a copy and follow along as I go page to page through just the pages I need to learn to hunt a whitetail deer. This book is 126 pages, but we are only going to need to study about 16 pages.

Lastly, I would like to invite you to join the brand new hunting community we are starting at This group is a safe place to ask questions and share knowledge related to hunting. The focus of this group is to help new and inexperienced hunters, but veteran hunters are encouraged to join and help mentor their fellow hunters.
