Government Affairs

IOGA is constantly engaged in monitoring state and federal agencies (Exs:  Idaho Outfitters and Guides Licensing Board; Idaho Fish and Game Department; U.S. Forest Service; Bureau of Land Management), the Idaho state legislature in conjunction with our professional lobbyists and the U.S. Congress through IOGA’s affiliate membership with America Outdoors Association, the national outfitter organization.

Since 1992, IOGA has sponsored IOGA Lobby Days at the Idaho Statehouse in February and now in odd numbered years. The goal of Lobby Days is for members and staff to make contact with elected leaders at the Statehouse and during our Taste of Idaho Outfitting dutch oven cuisine dinner served at downtown Boise’s Basque Center.

IOGA strives to keep regulation of the industry reasonable and to a minimum and in this regard we work to maintain and nurture relationships with governmental entities and elected leaders.
