The Idaho Fish and Game Commission earlier this year, approved a new "special unit" tag for some turkey hunts in the Panhandle Region.

For the fall 2007 wild turkey season, which opens September 15, Idaho resident hunters will be able to buy up to three "special unit" turkey tags for units 1, 2, 3 and 5, in addition to the two tags hunters could have in any Idaho turkey season.

The special tags cost $5 each, including vendor fee. Hunters may take as many turkeys as they have valid tags in units 1, 2, 3 and 5.

The fall season in all Panhandle units have been extended to December 15.

High populations and landowner complaints prompted the changes.
