HUNTING — With waterfowl seasons opening Saturday, Idaho hunters are noticing that a table of official hunting hours, which change during the season, are no longer published in the Idaho Fish and Game Department's waterfowl hunting regulations pamphlet. 

That's because the legal shooting hours have been simplified to one-half hour before sunrise to sunset.

Waterfowl hunters can find sunrise and sunset hours for the area they will be hunting in newspapers and various online sources, including this site.

In addition, a chart of shooting hours is available on the waterfowl page on the fish and Game website

But if you're like me and  still want something on paper you can keep in your pickup, look for the Shooting Hours pamphlet available at license vendors and Fish and Game offices.
