Regional Proposals
Southeast Region 5

Fall Turkey:

Landowners in the Southeast region continue to experience chronic turkey depredation issues on private lands during late fall in units 73, 74, 75, 77, and 78. A late season on private lands only is intended to address these depredations and provide additional sportsmen opportunity. During this time of year, turkeys generally are not found on public lands. Limiting the hunt to private lands only will ensure hunting pressure is focused where problems are occurring.

Proposal: The Department proposes to add a new late fall general hunt on private land only in units 73, 73, 75, 77, and 78 from November 21–December 31, to address nuisance turkey conflicts on private land during winter.

November 21, 2018 through December 31, 2018 and November 21, 2019 through December 31, 2019.

General fall hunt in Game Management Units 73, 74, 75, 77, and 78. This hunt is open on private lands only.

 
 
 

Beaver Trapping:

Cottonwood Creek runs mostly through private lands and has been a beaver conflict area for several years. Limited beaver trapping would help alleviate current beaver conflict issues.

Proposal: The Department proposes to add two Controlled Trapping Units for the Cottonwood Creek drainage within Bannock County (5 beaver each).

Beaver Trapping:

Miner Creek and Cedar Creek (tributaries of the Blackfoot) have been closed to trapping on private lands for 20+ years, but currently hold robust beaver populations.

Proposal: The Department proposes to allow beaver trapping in Miner and Cedar creeks.

Exceptions: Beaver

Bingham County: Cedar Cr. And Miner Cr., and Public lands (Idaho Department of Lands, U.S. Forest Service, and Bureau of Land Management properties) within the Willow Creek drainage.

 
 

Beaver Trapping:

Currently, Controlled Beaver Trapping Unit 202 allows the take of 10 beaver in the Pebble Creek and Toponce Creek drainages in Caribou County. Splitting this unit into two will provide additional opportunities for trappers in the Southeast Region.

Proposal: The Department proposes to split Controlled Beaver Trapping Unit 202 into two separate Controlled Trapping Units for Pebble Creek and Toponce Creek in Caribou County. Each Controlled Trapping Unit would allow take of 5 beaver each.
