Idaho Fish and Game plans a series of open house meetings to talk about an ongoing elk management plan revision and one of those will be held on Monday, May 13, at the Larsen-Sant Library in Preston.
The Preston and other meetings in the region will begin at 6:30 p.m.
Learn about the process, ask questions of Fish and Game’s wildlife managers and share your thoughts about statewide management direction, said Jennifer Jackson, regional conservation educator based in Pocatello.
Idaho’s current elk management plan is more than 12 years old. Strategies in the plan will be driven by public expectations and changes in elk populations, said Jackson.
“Revisions being considered are based largely on a survey of Idaho elk hunters in the spring and summer of 2012 and, in part, on changes in habitat, predation and agricultural depredation conflicts,” she added.
Comments are due by May 31 and may be submitted during public meetings to wildlife managers at regional offices, by e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or by mail to Elk Plan Comments, P.O. Box 25, Boise ID 83707.
