Online bidding underway for Idaho trips

February 19, 2010 | 11:42 am

Bidders have a chance to win a fly-fishing excursion to Idaho's Nature Conservancy Silver Creek Preserve.

Imagine yourself fly-fishing in the serene setting pictured above; or catching and radio-collaring elk calves; or perhaps releasing young trout into a lake accessible only by horseback or other non-motorized means.

These are only a few of the unique experiences up for bid on the Idaho Fish and Wildlife Foundation online auction. Bidding opened this morning and will close at 8 p.m. (Pacific Time) on Sunday, Feb. 28.

Ranging from day trips to overnight excursions, 42 outdoor adventures are on the auction block, from guided fly-fishing or youth-mentored duck hunting to patrolling the Salmon River by jetboat or helping biologists capture and radio-collar elk calves.

Co-sponsored by the Idaho Department of Fish and Game, the 20th annual auction benefits Idaho's Watchable Wildlife programs, designed to promote education, wildlife viewing and photography, and instill an appreciation for what the state has to offer outdoors.

Full trip descriptions and step-by-step instructions for bidding are available on the IFWF auction webpage.

Good luck and happy bidding!
