HUNTING -- A survey about elk hunting in Idaho is underway, with a random sample and an open online form. Essentially, the University of Idaho researchers are asking hunters what they like and don't like about elk hunting in the state.
Participants are being asked about their experiences hunting elk, and how they feel about Fish and Game restrictions on elk hunting.
The public input could be used by the Idaho Fish and Game Commission, which is revising its five-year elk management plan.
The questionnaire has been mailed to a random sample of 6,200 people who purchased elk general hunting tags in Idaho in 2011. But any interested persons can take the survey online.
The closing date is Friday, June 22.
