Take the survey about using OHVs while hunting
Idaho Fish and Game is participating in a University of Idaho survey about hunting and the use of off-highway vehicles and all-terrain vehicles.
Participants are being asked about their experiences using OHVs while hunting and how they feel about Fish and Game restrictions in some areas on the use of OHVs while hunting.
The Idaho Fish and Game Commission is in the process of revising its rules for use of motorized vehicles while hunting and would like public input on this topic.
The questionnaire has been mailed to a random sample of 4,000 people who are either hunters or OHV owners in Idaho. But any interested persons can take the survey online at cnr.uidaho.edu/access/index.htm. The closing date is June 22.
