ID: F&G seeks comments on upland game seasons

Idaho Fish and Game is working on recommendations for furbearer
and upland game hunting season rules, except sage-grouse, for
2012-13 and 2013-14.

Final recommendations will be presented to the Idaho Fish and Game
Commission at the January 2012 meeting. All rules, except for
sage-grouse, will be published in one brochure.

Some ideas that will be considered include:

Expanding youth hunting opportunities.

Moving upland game bird seasons to the third Saturday in
September.

Increasing the chukar/gray partridge bag limit back up to 8
each.

Increasing possession limits to three times the daily bag
limit.

Reductions in fall turkey hunting in the Southeast and Southwest
regions.

Increasing otter quotas in the Panhandle, Clearwater and
Southeast regions.

A few changes to areas open or closed to beaver trapping in the
Clearwater and Magic Valley Regions.

 

Regional public hearings will be announced when they are set.
Public comments will be accepted until January 6 at regional
meetings, on a webpage that will be available on the Fish and Game
website later this week or by mail to Upland Game Comments, P.O.
Box 25, Boise ID 83707.

Sage-grouse seasons will be set separately during the August
2012 commission meeting. Nonbiological rules are considered by the
commission during summer, and then reviewed by the legislature the
following winter.
