NAMPA — The Idaho Department of Fish and Game will be setting new seasons for upcoming deer, elk, pronghorn, black bear, mountain lion, and wolf hunts in March, and gathering public input on upcoming season proposals.
The easiest way for hunters to review proposals and weigh in will be visiting the big game proposals webpage at idfg.idaho.gov/big-game. Proposals will be posted Monday, and the comment period will run from Feb. 8-25. The proposals will be posted by region and separated by species within each region.
In addition to the virtual open houses, regional Fish and Game staff will also host call-in sessions to provide people without internet access an opportunity to weigh in on the proposals.
Virtual Open House ScheduleAll virtual open houses will start at 6 p.m. local time. Links to each virtual meeting will are available at idfg.idaho.gov/big-game.
