Upland Game & Furbearer Rules Available
The new 2004-2005 Upland Game Seasons and Rules brochure is available now at license vendors and Fish and Game offices throughout Idaho.
The brochure contains seasons and rules for upland game birds, rabbits and hares as well as covering furbearers, predators and unprotected species. Included in this brochure are seasons and rules for crows, doves and sandhill cranes. Doves and sandhill cranes were previously covered in separate publications. Abbreviated trapping rules are also included in the new brochure.
The brochure can be found on the department Internet web site at http//:fishand game.idaho.gov.
Popular bird seasons begin September 1 when hunting begins for forest grouse and doves.
No major changes were made in the 2004-2005 rules from the last set of rules but hunters should read the new brochure carefully to understand seasons and rules. Hunters should note that these are two-year rules and be careful to refer to season dates for the current year.
