it will NOT be attached to my bow
Hunters are invited to join an online chat with the Idaho Department of Fish and Game and ask questions, give feedback, and learn more about proposed changes to the 2014 big game hunting seasons in the Southwest Region.
Hunters can chat live with wildlife biologists from the Nampa and McCall offices from noon to 1 p.m., and again from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. (MST) Wednesday, February 26. To participate, return to this page. You can also add your email to a reminder at the event that fits your schedule.
Some proposed changes in the Southwest Region include:
- Considering adjustments to Unit 39 deer and elk hunts
- Considering lengthening the black bear controlled hunt seasons in Weiser River Units
- View all proposed Southwest changes online here https://fishandgame.idaho.gov/content/webform/southwest-proposals-2014-b...
In addition to the live chat, Fish and Game will host public open house meetings throughout the state during February. A complete list of statewide deer, elk, pronghorn, wolf, black bear and mountain lion hunt proposals and a way to submit comments online will be available on the Fish and Game website after February 17.
The new plan kind of says we will in certain zones.
I am a new Idaho resident, about 6 months now. I am totally and permanently disabled as I have a degenerative spinal disease and I am unable to walk very far. In California, if a person was totally and permanently disabled with documentation from their doctor, we could use an ATV to get to hunting or fishing areas, even if areas were a non-motorized area.
They allowed this under Federal ADA mandatory rules for allowing access to recreational areas for the disabled.
The Southwest Region is hosting an online live chat as part of the public meetings for proposed big game regulation changes.
Tune in to this website on Tuesday, March 5th between 12:00pm and 2:00pm MT to learn about the proposed changes and get your questions answered.
More information available as it becomes available.
