Waterfowl hunting regs to be updated based on survey results


Idaho Fish and Game

Duck hunting zones are changing, but Idaho County will continue to be part of a zone where hunting will open on the Saturday in October that allows the season to close as late as possible in January.

A recent survey conducted by Idaho Fish and Game found that 79 percent of waterfowl hunters surveyed preferred a continuous season and 69 percent want the season to run as late into January as possible. Idaho Fish and Game commissioners will set the 2017-18 waterfowl seasons on April 11.

In response to the survey, Idaho will have four different zones for the next four seasons. North Idaho and eastern Idaho are now separated, and Franklin and Onieda counties were added to Zone 3 (which includes much of north and south Idaho). Newly added Zone 4 consists solely of Valley County.
