Wildfire impacts on hunting

Question:

I was wondering if the Big Cougar fire in hunting unit 11 will have any impact on the hunting seasons within that unit. I have waited a lot of years to draw this tag for mule deer and finally did this year. Since this fire burnt so much prime mule deer habitat, do you anticipate any season changes?

Answer:

There will be no rain checks offered for this hunt.  The unit still has much area open to hunting and the fire is now out.  For more information, please contact the Clearwater Regional Office at:  208-799-5010.
