What changes were made to the Motorized Vehicle Use Rule?

Answer

The name changed to Motorized Hunting Rule to make it clear that this rules applies to hunters using motorized vehicles as an aid to hunting.  The rule is now specific only to hunting of big game animals, including moose, bighorn sheep and mountain goat, in designated units, and only applies from August 30 through December 31. 

Between these dates and in the designated units, specific to all big game hunting, hunters may use motorized vehicles only on established roadways that are open to motorized traffic and capable of being traveled by full-sized automobiles.   

The rule no longer applies to hunting of upland game birds or upland game animals.
