At this time, regional personnel are still summarizing data from brood routes conducted in the Clearwater, Magic Valley and Southwest regions. When that data has been summarized, it will be posted online. Look for it within the next month.
Like many other years, hunting can vary widely geographically. Idaho is an extremely geographically diverse state. Spring conditions were favorable across much of Idaho during 2012. Persistent drought conditions could impact brood survival. However, reports from folks in the field suggest the population had good production and this fall looks to be promising.
