Comments Sought On Non-Biological Rule Changes Affecting Big Game And Furbearers

LEWISTON - - The Idaho Department of Fish and Game (IDFG) is looking for input on proposed changes to the non-biological 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 8:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. at the Lewiston Regional Office on Monday, July 2nd.

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 IDFG personnel about the proposals. Written comments collected will be presented to the Fish and Game Commission prior to their 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 or can be obtained at the IDFG Clearwater Regional office in Lewiston.
