The birds of the year will be larger and the hunting dogs will have less chance of heat stroke and rattlesnake encounters when Idaho’s partridge and quail seasons open this year.

The Idaho seasons open Oct. 1 – that’s two weeks later than last year’s season opener.

Organized sportsmen made the case for the later season opener before the state Fish and Game Commission two years ago.
