A bit off topic, but I just got back from WY and was talking with their F&G office and wardens daily.  The difference in attitude couldn't be overstated, they really cared and bent over backwards to help me.

Here in Washington they prefer that we bend over and I don’t mean backwards.

I went to the IDFG seminar on thursday. Was well put together and informative. The fella giving the seminar seemed like a hunter and outdoorsman. Not some kid with a degree. Ill be going to ID for sure in 2021, even with the price increase!

Actually it's humorous since they will be cutting non resident hunter numbers for 2021.

What are the proposed changes?

I'm sure there is more too it, but I caught a rumor that all of the draw tags would be going to a 10% non-resident cap... That and price increases.

I've also heard that general deer tags will go to a zones system like the elk tags

Dont bring up wolf management to the IDFG.. I got into a heated discussion with them at the Sheep show and had to listen to lie after lie till I just stop talking after I heard enough crap and walked off.

What were the issues?  They've always been pretty aggressive on wolf harvest from my perspective.  For example, their website lists 9 new wolf hunting proposals...every one of them is a proposal to extend wolf hunting and wolf trapping (including allowing use of snares in some areas)  :dunno:

Stopped by the IDFG Booth Friday Night and had the CWD discussion …

Said currently there are No Positive Big Game CWD Test Results in Idaho.
However, expecting first positive test result within the next year...

it is on their door-step with surrounding MT, UT and WY documented CWD cases and they know it.

Great discussion and education on how to properly process your game to prevent disease spread of the contagious protein. Don't bury "boned out" carcass/skulls … place in garbage bags and take to land fill. Bit of a Challenge for Back-Country Hunters …Eh?

IDFG Regional Offices will pull game head lymph nodes and test for Free.
Approximately 1 Month turn around for test results.  If your game tests positive
unfortunately the season almost over and will not get replacement tag or voucher
for replacement tag following season (I had to ask...).

Recommended Not to Eat Game with positive test results (D'oh!) … but, noted that Wisconsin residents have been living with and likely consuming CWD Deer for years ...

They also wanted to make hunters traveling through Idaho from surrounding Documented CWD States aware of their Carcass Transport Rules:

Out-of-State Carcass Import Ban (Note the "Exceptions")

told me elk were thriving in areas of wolves, that wolf to livestock conflict is going down as posted was a record year, wolves have plateaued out, yet numbers show them going up every year. Just released there are 500+ more than they expected, tells me all this then goes on to tell me they have no idea how many wolves occupy the panhandle. Lolo, selway herds have declined not because of wolves  :rolleyes: keep spewing you garbage. there was even more if I wanted to start thinking about it all.

Nope... the unlimited draw tags are/were.... unlimited, no NR cap except for Frank Church which became capped 2 years ago

That's true, but I always considered them a better option than a regular OTC tag and I never had to worry about not getting one.
