Idaho Fish and Game's Southeast Region is encouraging anyone who is interested in participating in special turkey depredation hunts in the region to apply.
In order to help relieve crop and property damage problems caused by turkeys, Fish and Game may have to implement special hunts in some limited areas in southeast Idaho. These hunts are usually held on short notice, involve small areas, and are usually limited to a few hunters.
The turkey depredation hunt application can be found in the Upland Game, Furbearer and Turkey Rule Booklet on page 33. Please complete the application and mail it to or drop it off at the regional office located at 1345 Barton Road, Pocatello, 83204.
Applicants will be added to the current list of depredation hunt applicants in the order they are received. There is no guarantee Fish and Game will implement depredation hunts that will include all the applicants. However, Fish and Game is anticipating the potential need for these special hunts in the southeast region and would like to compile a list of hunters to contact if it becomes necessary to address depredation concerns.
