Idaho Fish and Game Wildlife Research Manager Mark Hurley was a recent guest on the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife's Beaver State Podcast where he discussed mule deer nutrition, predation, and climate.
Fish and Game Wildlife Biologists took to the air in late July to capture pronghorn antelope as part of a statewide effort to improve the understanding of pronghorn migration routes and habitat use. In all, 106 pronghorn were outfitted with GPS tracking collars across 27 Game Management Units. Thirty one of those collars were placed on pronghorn in the Upper Snake Region.
Idaho Fish and Game researchers are currently working to improve their understanding of white-tailed deer populations in Idaho, and equip wildlife managers with the tools to better manage one of Idaho’s most popular big game species.
