BOISE - A new law that takes effect July 1 reduces the archery and muzzleloader permit fees specifically for Disabled American Veterans in Idaho. Only holders of Disabled American Veteran licenses are eligible for the discounted permits.
The new fees for both permit types are $3.75 for resident and $5.75 for nonresident Disabled American Veterans. DAV license holders previously had to pay the regular resident or nonresident price for these permits.
To receive DAV reduced fees, veterans must provide a copy of their official VA Disability Percentage Rating letter, and the letter must verify a service-connected disability rating of 40 percent or greater.
