Idaho partridge season closes early

The state of Idaho has closed their chukar and Hungarian partridge season as of Jan 10th. This is to assist in minimizing the take of birds that are vulnerable due to very heavy show across the state.

This is a good thing as the birds will concentrate on the open areas at lower elevations - often near a road. This invites the taking of birds when they are very vulnerable.
