The regular deer season opens today in most regions of Idaho. In some areas, a regular deer tag allows hunters to take either mule deer or white-tailed deer. A white-tailed deer tag allows hunters to take only a white-tail. Many areas across the state also offer antlerless youth hunt opportunities, but check the 2011 big game rules brochure carefully for the areas where youth hunts are open. To hunt deer in Idaho during the regular season, a hunter must have a valid 2011 Idaho hunting license and a deer tag. A Southeast Idaho regional hunting forecast has been created by Toby Broudreau, regional Idaho Fish and Game wildlife manager.
