COEUR D’ALENE -- For the first time, hunters in North Idaho will no longer be able to target an antlerless elk when the elk season starts Wednesday.

State wildlife officials said the new rules are in place to protect a declining cow and calf population.

For years, North Idaho was among very few places where a hunter could kill an antlerless elk.

In addition to eliminating the cow hunt, the state has implemented other rules they hope will reduce the number of elk predators.
