The Southeast Region of Idaho Fish and Game has scheduled an open house to gather public comments on proposed changes to moose, bighorn sheep and mountain goat seasons and rules for the 2013-2014 hunting seasons.
The open house will be Monday, January 7, 2013, at the Fish and Game office located at 1345 Barton Road in Pocatello. Wildlife staff will be available between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. to discuss the proposed changes.
The proposed changes for the southeast region include:
- Unit 70 - add three bull tags, for a total of eight tags in the unit.
- Unit 70 - add a new antlerless hunt with five tags.
These changes are designed to provide additional opportunity in an area with a healthy moose population and to reduce conflicts in the urban areas surrounding Pocatello.
Proposed changes for all the Fish and Game regions are posted online at https://fishandgame.idaho.gov/content/trophyproposals. Comments can be entered online; via mail to Idaho Department of Fish and Game, 1345 Barton Rd., Pocatello, ID 83204; or by calling the southeast regional Fish and Game office at 208-232-4703.
Public comments are due by January 9.
The proposed changes along with public comments will be submitted to the Fish and Game Commission at their January 17 meeting.
