IDAHO FISH AND GAME
MAGIC VALLEY REGION NEWS RELEASE
"We are expecting to have a good season," said Randy Smith, Fish and Game Regional Wildlife Manager. "Due to this past winter's mild conditions, big game animals enjoyed good winter survival. Mild spring conditions were also excellent for fawning."
"Hunters should expect to see more young bucks," Smith said. "Numbers of mature bucks should be slightly improved from last year in most of our general hunting areas."
While hunters are preparing themselves for the deer hunt, the Fish and
Game is also asking sportsmen to take along the Citizens Against Poaching
(CAP) hotline number.
- Leave a detailed message on the CAP answering machine with the reporting party's name and phone number where an officer can call at the most convenient time.
Callers can remain anonymous at their request. The caller is encouraged to give the location of the occurrence according to the nearest town, road, milepost, county, drainage or GPS point. This aids Fish and Game in sending the right officer for the area.
