BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Idaho is poised to get more than $16 million in excise tax revenue that will be used on fish and wildlife restoration and recreation projects. Idaho’s share comes from a $882 million pot of tax revenue generated nationally last year by sportsmen through the sale of sporting firearms, ammunition, archery equipment, fishing gear and fuel taxes paid by recreational boaters.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announced the disbursements last week to fish and game agencies in all 50 states. For the state, Idaho’s Department of Fish and Game is getting more than $9.8 million for wildlife restoration projects this year and another $6.3 million for fish projects.
