Idaho Commission Approve Elk Management Plan

Ingram Publishing

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Idaho Fish and Game commissioners have approved a statewide elk management plan that includes killing more predators to boost elk populations. The Times-News reports that commissioners unanimously approved the 10-year plan Thursday that calls for killing more wolves, bears and cougars.

The plan also calls for monitoring elk habitat changes, and the damage caused by elk on crops and fences. Toby Boudreau is a wildlife program coordinator who wrote the new plan. He says nine and a half management zones are meeting elk population objectives, 11 exceed goals, and eight and a half are falling behind goals. Success rates among hunters in recent years have been about 22 percent.
