Is raising additional revenue the only topic or will shrinking the F & G Dept. to match existing (or less) revenue be discussed as well?


One of the stated goals for the Summit is to have a clear sense of what hunters, anglers, trappers and other wildlife conservationists want from their wildlife management agency.  Director Virgil Moore is expected to explain the dilemma that Fish and Game is facing; legal mandates and public expectations are outgrowing funding sources.  He wants to discuss this, and hear from Idahoans on how to meet those demands without infringing on the core Fish and Game mission of stewardship of wildlife to provide opportunities for hunting, fishing and trapping.  Options for moving forward will be part of the discussion.
