Survey covers elk hunting experiences in Idaho

   Idaho Fish and Game is participating in a survey about elk hunting in Idaho, and what elk hunters like and don't like.

   The survey is being conducted by the University of Idaho.

   Participants are being asked about their experiences hunting elk, and how they feel about Fish and Game restrictions on elk hunting.

   The Idaho Fish and Game Commission is in the process of revising its five-year elk management plan, and would like public input on this topic.

   Some future strategies are being considered for improved elk management.

   The questionnaire has been mailed to a random sample of 6,200 people who purchased elk general hunting tags in Idaho in 2011. But any interested persons can take the survey online at

   The closing date is Friday, June 22.
