Comment Sought on Nonbiological Rule Changes

The Idaho Department of Fish and Game is looking for public comments on proposed changes to the nonbiological rules affecting big game and furbearers.

Interested individuals can visit with department personnel concerning the proposed changes and provide their written comments by attending an open house meeting scheduled from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday, July 2, at the Clearwater Region office in Lewiston.

Proposals include changes in some rules related to the use of bait for trapping or hunting, methods used to trap wolves, and adjustments to the allocation of elk tags in capped zones.

The open house format allows participants to come and go during the day and visit with Fish and Game personnel about the proposals. Written comments collected will be presented to the Fish and Game Commission prior to the July meeting, where final action will be taken.

For those unable to attend the open house, a complete list of proposals is available for review on the IDFG website http://fishandgame.idaho.gov or can be obtained at the Fish and Game Clearwater Region office in Lewiston.
