Regulations for trophy species are completed every two years. This season setting process will be for 2001-02. Proposals include a statewide increase in moose and Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep permits, with a reduction in permits for mountain goat and California Bighorn sheep. Wildlife personnel will be on hand to discuss and answer questions concerning future permit levels and season dates of these species. All written comments received from the public will be presented to the Idaho Fish and Game Commission during their January meeting.
