Weigh in on controlled hunts

Idaho Fish and Game is getting opinions from hunters about possibly changing controlled hunt drawing odds and increasing the number of big game tags offered through auction. Take the survey at fishandgame.idaho.gov.

The Idaho Fish and Game Commission will use results from the surveys to consider whether changes to controlled hunt rules are warranted and to consider whether additional tags should be auctioned.
