The Idaho Fish and Game Commission is scheduled to set seasons for deer, elk, antelope, black bear and mountain lion during its Boise meeting, March 7-9, at Fish and Game headquarters, 600 S. Walnut.

The three-day meeting kicks off with a public comment period at 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 7, in the Trophy Room at Fish and Game headquarters.

Thursday they'll tackle the outfitter controlled tag allocation issue to accommodate legislative rejection of the previous rule, and proposed changes to big game seasons and rules.

The first item they'll tackle Friday will be the proposed Yellowstone cutthroat trout management plan, followed by action on the proposed 2007-2012 Fish Management Plan for the state.

They also will consider four land acquisitions in northern Idaho and wind up the meeting with an update on wolf management. For agenda details see Fish and Game's Website at
