Management direction in the Snake River Zone involves decreasing the current elk population? The zone is dominated by agricultural lands and small communities that are not compatible with large numbers of resident elk? It is proposed to continue managing for minimal elk numbers by using long, liberal hunting seasons and prompt responses to crop and property damage on agricultural lands

HuntScore Tip

The quality of your hunt depends on you. Preseason scouting, preparation for the environmental conditions, and physical conditioning are important factors. The success and quality of your hunt will likely increase with the distance from your vehicle and roads.
