TV Show Wins Awards

The Idaho Department of Fish and Game, along with KTVB, was honored with two 1999 Idaho Press Club awards.

Sue Nass won second place for television writing in the statewide contest with a story entitled "Sage Grouse Serenade". This segment of the May 1999 edition of Incredible Idaho highlighted the sage grouse research being conducted in the Owyhee desert and featured Biologists Jack Connelly and Tom Hemker.

Tom Hadzor, Jody Tee and Sue Nass also won a third place award in the Outdoor Report category for "Deer Wrestling", a two-part story on the February 1999 edition of Incredible Idaho. It was shot near Challis and featured a research study that measures fawn survival. The deer are captured in drive nets and the action was exciting. This story featured biologists Mark Hurley, Mike Scott and Mark Armbruster.

Incredible Idaho is no longer being produced, following a decision by the television station to discontinue the partnership arrangement it had with Fish and Game.
