Not nice, now everyone knows... It'll be interesting to see if this affects the odds in some units. I know some have pretty good odds because the unit is tough to access and tougher to move around in. Might be some folks get a bit of a wake up call if they put in just based on draw odds.Nice that they put the draw odds right in the regs, don't remember seeing that in the past

That is new.
It yanks my chain a bit.
For the last 10 years or so I'll do whatever I can to help DIY hunters in the Big Horn Crags going after sheep and goat. About 50% of the guys that I've given very specific info to have the desire to make it happen. They have had successful hunts that they will make them smile until the day we die.
The other 50% are overwhelmed by the remote big country with low ram density and don't give the tag it's due.
Like Pointer said, some just look at the odds and don't have a clue what the hunt consists of.
Someone help me off the soapbox, my knees still hurt from the Crags.
I was also put off by the inclusion of the drawing odds with the season information.
I agree that many will only look at the odds and on that page without doing additional research to learn why the drawings odds may be high, and then a tag will be wasted once someone learns that they drew a tag in an area with no roads.
I guess we'll see what happens, especially if future years also include this info.
Idaho is still a great place for these species.
