Fish and Game will be setting new seasons for upcoming deer, elk, pronghorn, black bear, mountain lion, and wolf hunts in March, and gathering public input on upcoming season proposals starting Feb. 8.

The easiest way for hunters to review proposals and weigh in will be visiting the big game proposals webpage at idfg.idaho.gov/big-game. Proposals will be posted on Feb. 8, and the comment period will run from Feb. 8-25. The proposals will be posted by region and separated by species within each region.

The public comment process will also include virtual open houses hosted by Fish and Game’s staff for each of its regions, along with one statewide open house.

In addition to the virtual open houses, regional Fish and Game staff will also host call-in sessions to provide people without Internet access an opportunity to weigh in on the proposals.

A virtual open house for the Clearwater Region is scheduled Feb. 24 through idfg.idaho.gov/big-game.
