Idaho reduces deer controlled hunt tags

From Idaho Fish and Game

-- Fish and Game officials have updated information on mule deer population status and over-winter survival, which shows high fawn mortality in some areas of southern Idaho.

Overall, over-winter fawn survival among 15 study areas is the lowest since monitoring began; 69 percent of radio-collared fawns had died by April 30. Mule deer fawn survival was lowest in the McCall-Weiser, at 9 percent, and the Island Park, at 18 percent, areas.

Because of the below normal over-winter survival of mule deer in some areas of Idaho, the Fish and Game Commission has approved reductions to tag numbers set in the 2011 big game hunting seasons and rules booklet and the Landowner Appreciation Program brochure:

These include, by hunt type, hunt number,  hunt area - unit(s), and- proposed change:

Controlled - 1039 - 60-1 - 60, 60A, 62A - Reduce tags from 50 to 25 (buck only). 
Controlled - 1040 - 62 - 62 - Reduce tags from 30 to 15 (buck only). 
Controlled - 1042 - 67 - 67 - Reduce tags from 40 to 20 (buck only). 
Controlled - 1047 - 22 - 22 - Reduce tags from 350 to 150 (antlerless hunt). 
Controlled - 1049 - 31 - 31 - Reduce tags from 350 to 150 (antlerless hunt). 
Controlled - 1050 - 32 - 32 - Reduce tags from 450 to 225 (antlerless hunt).

Controlled - 1064 - 62 - 62 - Reduce tags from 100 to 10 (either-sex hunt).

Controlled - 1088 - 64 - 64, 65 - Reduce tags from 50 to 10 (either-sex hunt).
