Survey covers elk hunting experiences in Idaho

By Niels Nokkentved, IDFG

   The closing date in a public opinion survey about elk hunting in Idaho has been extended to July 1.

   Idaho Fish and Game is in the process of revising its elk management plan, and is working with the University of Idaho on an elk hunting survey.

   The questionnaire has been mailed to a random sample of 6,200 people who purchased elk general hunting tags in Idaho in 2011. Anyone who received a questionnaire in the mail is asked to complete it and return it or go to the website it lists and complete it online.

   Anyone else interested is encouraged to take the survey online at the Idaho Fish and Game website at http://fishand, under "Comments / Surveys / Questions." Please enter your zip code.

   The closing date is Sunday, July 1.
