Idaho’s 2014 seasons and rules brochure for upland game, furbearers and turkey is scheduled to be shipped from the printer the week of Feb. 17, Fish and Game said.

The next one out will be big game brochure, with deer, elk, pronghorn, mountain lion, wolf and black bear seasons. It is scheduled to ship the week of April 14.

The moose, mountain goat and bighorn sheep brochure was printed last year and is good through 2014.

The fishing brochure is good through 2015, so Fish and Game recommends hanging on to your copy.

Waterfowl rules are due to ship the week of Sept. 10.
