If nonresident tags and 2010 licenses went on sale December 1, why aren't the 2010 big game books available yet?



The 2010 Big Game Seasons and Rules won't be available until after the Idaho Fish and Game Commission sets the big game seasons for 2010 at the commission meeting in late March. The books go to the printer shortly after that and will be available in early April. The seasons are not set earlier because any changes are based in part on the results from 2009 hunting seasons, which must be gathered and tabulated before changes can be recommended.
