SPORTSMEN ONLINE -- Idaho Fish and Game officials sat down Friday with 158 waterfowl hunters from all over the state, answering their quesstions about waterfowl hunting and management -- and nobody had to leave their officer or home.

The agency's first online chat. For example:

Comment from Duckhunter:

Will Idaho ever move to a split season for water fowl hunting?

IFG's Waterfowl biologist JEFF KNETTER:

It is entirely possible that Idaho could have a split season; however, when we conducted a survey of Idaho waterfowl hunters in July, 75% of survey respondents favored a continuous season.
