Idaho's wildlife habitat will receive a boost from one of the most successful radio auctions ever held with Fish and Game participation.
Fish and Game teamed up with the Idaho Fish and Wildlife Foundation and the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation May 9 for a radio auction that was heard through most of southern Idaho. The Idaho Falls area took part for the first time in the 10-year history of the annual radio auction.
The auction raised $15,870, the highest since 1992 when the auction brought in about $1,000 more than that. The money will be available for wildlife habitat projects.
Bidders called in to the four stations carrying the auction-KIDO in Boise, KID in Idaho Falls, KWIK in Pocatello and KLIX in Twin Falls-to buy 24 special trips. The adventures were offered by Fish and Game personnel and by private resorts and outfitters throughout Idaho.
