Bird Comments Sought

Idaho Fish and Game is seeking public comments on statewide migratory game bird season proposals for the 2023-2024 season in the Panhandle and elsewhere in the state. The comment period comes after some hunters in Northern Idaho over the past year or so, have been dissatisfied with the season structure during the 2022-2023 season and have expressed a desire to hunt Canada geese through January 31. Results from previous survey efforts suggest duck hunters prefer seasons that start and end early. Comments will be accepted through Wednesday, March 22. You can review the proposals and submit comments online at
