The bill would have restricted Idaho Fish and Game's ability to regulate ATV use by hunters. The bill fell by a 15 to 20 vote in the Senate after passing in the House. This was one of several issues pertaining to Fish and Game this sesson and among the most contentious. F&G restricts ATV use in about a third of its hunting units to lessen conflicts between hunters and make big game less vulnerable to them. But some legislators believe F&G is over-stepping its authority by restricting where and when hunters can use ATVs.
