Q. Every time I turn around, there is a reminder to file my big game harvest report. What's the hurry?
A. Hunters are asked to file their harvest report, regardless of whether they actually hunted with their tags or whether they took an animal, within 10 days of the harvest or within 10 days of the end of their hunts. There is a hurry: it takes some time to collect reports and turn them into a useful report for the Commission, which uses this together with winter herd counts and other biological information to set hunting seasons early in the new year for the fall. To report on your deer,elk, and/or pronghorn tag go to http://fishandgame.idaho.gov or you can call 1-877-268-9365.
