Fish and Game cameras have been capturing photos of deer migrating over the new Cervidae Peak Wildlife Overpass on Highway 21 in Southwest Idaho.

Idaho Fish and Game conservation officers in the Southwest Region are seeking information about a mule deer that was shot near Weiser and left to waste sometime between Saturday, Nov. 18 and the late morning of Sunday, Nov. 19.
Beginning this week, Idaho Fish and Game staff will take to the air to get a closer look at deer numbers, including several low-level helicopter surveys planned in the Salmon and Challis areas. In January, Fish and Game biologists will conduct elk surveys in the Beaverhead Zone followed by bighorn sheep surveys along the Middle Fork Salmon River in March. The purpose is to gather abundance and herd composition information that helps game managers understand population numbers and trends.
Quagga mussels, an invasive species capable of causing harm to waterways, fish populations and fisheries, were found in the Snake River near Twin Falls by the Idaho Department of Agriculture in September 2023.
