There's a fire in the area I hunt. Is Fish and Game going to close the hunt?

Answer: 

Fish and Game has not, and does not plan to, close any hunts because of fire. If a land management agency closes access to everyone because of extreme fire danger in an area, Fish and Game will support that decision. Right now, there is no complete elk zone or controlled hunt which has been burned. You may have to move your traditional camp or hunt area to another location within the zone or hunt area for which your tag is good. Deer hunters shouldn't worry because their tags are good in multiple units. To get the latest information on fires in Idaho, look under "What's New" on the Fish and Game website: http://www.state.id.us/fishgame/firepage.htm.
