Idaho hunters required to stop at check stations

BIG-GAME HUNTING -- Good luck to all you hunters heading out Monday for the opening of Idaho's general rifle deer hunting season.

Whether you bag a deer or not, be sure to stop when you come a cross an Idaho Fish and Game Department hunter check station.  Your stop helps them manage wildlife better for all of us.

All hunters and anglers are required to stop at check stations, whether you have any game animals or fish in the vehicle or not. You must stop if going to their hunting or fishing spot or returning home from their hunting or fishing.

Idaho law requires sportsmen stop even if they have been unsuccessful.
