I heard that during the waterfowl youth hunt that youth can hunt the ponds on the Hagerman WMA. Is this true?

Answer:

In the area described below, the Hagerman WMA is closed to waterfowl hunting.  Youth cannot hunt there either EXCEPT during IDFG sponsored youth waterfowl hunts.  Contact the Magic Valley Region office for information about these sponsored events.  Their phone number is 1-208-324-4359.

 

Areas Closed to Hunting:

Hagerman Wildlife Management Area in Gooding County in the area within the boundary beginning 200 yards west of the point at which U.S. Highway 30 crosses the south bank of Gridley Island, then northwest along a line 200 yards southwest of and parallel to U.S. Highway 30 to a point 200 yards west of the junction of U.S. Highway 30 and the wildlife management area entrance, then west and north and east along a line 200 yards outside of the wildlife management area boundary, which is marked by a fence, to the point at which the fence meets U.S. Highway 30, then east and south along a line 500 yards outside of the wildlife management area boundary to the Snake River, then downstream along the north bank of the Snake River and then along the south bank of Gridley Island to the point where U.S. Highway 30 crosses the south bank of Gridley Island, then 200 yards west of U.S. Highway 30 to the point of beginning.
