2014 Summer Interns Needed for Wolf Monitoring

March 31, 2014 - 11:40am -- idfg-lrobinson

Two interns are needed June through August to assist with monitoring and research of wolves in the Idaho Panhandle. Interns will assist in the following activities: maintaining remote cameras, collecting scat samples for DNA analysis, and monitoring radio-collared wolves via ground telemetry. Interns will work 10 days on/4 days off and will be provided a field vehicle, remote housing (running water, but no cell service or internet), and a food stipend of $500/month.

Another Wolverine Detection in the Joe

February 17, 2014 - 3:51pm -- idfg-mlucid

The tough-as-nails IDFG bait station crew just got back from an 8 day hitch in GMU7 - the upper reaches of the Saint Joe River drainage. Their hitch began with the thermometer at -20F...and ended in the rain. They took on the worst of what a north Idaho winter could throw at them and it paid off with nice images and great samples from this wolverine! Thanks to the crew for toughing it out for wildlife!

Lynx Captured in West Cabinet Mountains

February 4, 2014 - 7:50pm -- idfg-mlucid

Two trapping partners had a trapline of only two bobcat traps in the Idaho Panhandle's West Cabinet Mountains. They had each set one trap. Imagine their surprise on January 29 when they walked up to the first set and discovered, not a bobcat, but a lynx in the trap. The trappers knew just what to do. They called Idaho Fish and Game to report the non-target capture.

Coons in the Coeur d' Alenes

February 2, 2014 - 11:53am -- idfg-mlucid

For the first time we had racoons visit one of our bait stations. This pair of coons was found in a remote portion of the Coeur d' Alene Mountains, near the Montana border, at about 3,000 feet in elevation. We have now had a total of 28 species visit our bait stations.

Fall Mushrooms

October 2, 2013 - 7:03pm -- idfg-mlucid

One of the things I love most about hunting is slowing down and focusing completely on my immediate surroundings. My senses are totally focused on the task at hand and the forest around me...which sets me up perfectly to find great mushrooms to cook up back at camp!
