Wildlife managers with Idaho Fish and Game are in the process of crafting seasons and rules for the 2015 big game hunting season, and they want to hear from those interested in providing input. They are also proposing to convert the big game season-setting process from a one-year cycle to a two-year cycle for white-tailed deer, mule deer, elk, pronghorn, black bear, mountain lion and gray wolf.
The Idaho Fish and Game Commission will meet in Boise on March 24. Commissioners will set seasons for deer, elk, pronghorn, bear, mountain lion and wolf, as well as spring Chinook salmon.
Bowling, trapshooting results
Grangeville's Shaydn Wassmuth (195) and Kamiah's Zach Wilkins (152) both reached their respective finals with wins on Saturday morning at the 2A state wrestling tournament.
Michael Wilson put up 20 points in a crucial stop on Grangeville's road back to the 2A boys basketball state tournament. St. Maries claimed the north's top seed by winning the district championship earlier in the week, but GHS extended its season with a 60-35 victory over New Plymouth Saturday afternoon.
Orofino nicked Grangeville twice in the final three meetings between the Central Idaho League rivals, but only the last one counted -- and after falling to the Maniacs earlier in the tournament, GHS took the 2A District I-II consolation playoff 47-40 to set up a meeting with District III's third best team, New Plymouth, at 1 p.m. MT in McCall, Saturday, Feb. 28.
Seven lead changes during the first half signaled a close game, but for much of the contest, Lapwai stood firmly in control of the 1AD1 District II boys district title game Friday night at the LCSC Activity Center. During the short stretches when the Pirates' shots were falling, Prairie evened up the game -- but a bit of treachery in the Pirates' shooting touch combined with timely shooting by the Wildcats allowed Lapwai to sustain scoring runs up to double-digit leads early and late in the game.
Kamiah's Zach Wilkins (152) and Grangeville's Shaydn Wassmuth (195) both aced their state wrestling competition, and will wrestle as two of the area's eight remaining medal hopefuls tomorrow.
The Clearwater Valley nine carried the 1A District I-II team title last Saturday, Feb. 21, in part on the strength of a strong finish by Tyler Morrow. Individually, one of the day’s best results belonged to Prairie’s Dally Ratcliff, who won the district title at 132 pounds.
