In a place with such rugged terrain as Idaho, it is almost impossible to count wildlife or do trapping work without the aid of aircraft.  The problem is that helicopters buzzing around at low altitudes tend to annoy hunters and stir up game, so IDFG tries to wait until hunting seasons are over to take to the air.  In the Upper Snake Region, the majority of big game seasons are over by the start of December; so IDFG will now begin to use hired airships for wildlife management work, taking care to avoid those areas where hunts may still be open.
