Hunters weigh in at F&G open houses
Fish and Game staff will hold a series of open houses around the state to talk to hunters about their preferences for rules and seasons for the upcoming big game hunts.
The department will also provide a list of proposed rule changes for the 2019-20 big game hunting seasons before the first meetings, and people will be able to see those proposals and comment online.
The Idaho Fish and Game Commission will review public comments, and are scheduled to set seasons and rules during its March 12-13 meeting in Boise.
