Antlers, horns, restrictions
FISH AND GAME – Adds to existing law to provide for seasonal restrictions regarding antlers and horns to protect wintering big game.

RS30544 / S1143

This legislation authorizes the Idaho Fish and Game Commission to regulate, on a seasonal basis, activities related to antlers and horns of deer, elk, moose, bighorn sheep, and pronghorn to address potential negative impacts from these activities on big game animals that are vulnerable from winter conditions.

This legislation has little or no fiscal impact on the State’s General Fund or any dedicated fund as it does not propose to change State revenue sources, including statutory fish and game fee schedules. Any potential impact related to regulatory enforcement of changes is expected to be a matter of prioritization within current enforcement resources.
