Hunters asked to comment on proposed waterfowl seasons

Idaho Department of Fish and Game is seeking public comment on proposed changes to the 2015-2016 waterfowl seasons.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, which oversees waterfowl management at the national level, authorized Fish and Game to hold a waterfowl season similar to the 2014-2015 season. Idaho Fish and Game has proposed a 105-day season and a two-day youth hunt, identical in length to last year's season.

For ducks and Canada geese, the 107 days can only occur between Sept. 26 and Jan. 31, 2016. For white-fronted geese and light geese (Snow and Ross’s), the 107 days can only occur between Sept. 26 and March 10, 2016. Minor rule changes are proposed this year.

The Fish and Game commission will set the final waterfowl seasons Aug. 11 in Idaho Falls.

To view and comment on the season proposals, see https://fishandgame.idaho.gov/content/public-involvement. Comments will be collected through Aug. 7.

The proposed seasons and comment forms are available at IDFG’s regional offices. Written comments may be mailed to: 2015-16 Waterfowl Seasons, P.O. Box 25, Boise, ID 83707.
