Waterfowl Season Open House Meeting Set For August 5

LEWISTON - The Idaho Department of Fish and Game has scheduled an open house meeting for the public to review and provide written comments concerning the 2002-2003 waterfowl season proposals. Set for Monday, August 5, the open house will be held at the Clearwater Region office, 1540 Warner Avenue in Lewiston, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Department biologists will be available during those hours to discuss the proposed regulations.
Local duck populations have faired well, but drought, cool spring weather and poor habitat conditions are to blame for the apparent decline in duck production in Southern Alberta, where the majority of Idaho’s migrants come from. Hunters should expect a reduction in harvest, probably through shorter season as well as reduced bag limits.

Other proposals for public review include:  


May consider opening waterfowl seasons one week earlier and close one week later compared to last year.

Allowed duck season length will probably be shorter than in 2001, while the goose season will probably be unchanged.

Different split seasons and zones will be reviewed.

Restrictions on canvasback and pintail harvest probable.

Those unable to attend can call (208) 799-5010, or send written comments to the above address, or fax 208-799-5012 by 5 p.m. the same day. All comments will go to the Idaho Fish and Game Commission for consideration at their August meeting.
