With the season opener just a few days away, don't know if I should be concerned or not. In the Rathdrum area, there is a man made lake called Radiant Lake. This lake for the past month or so has held up to approx. 300 birds. Some days they are here, other days they are sitting else where. During this time period, approx 50 birds have been found dead along the shore line. Fish & Game was contacted and several birds were taken to be tested for the cause of death. I contacted Fish & Game today, and was advised no test results have been returned to them yet. When asked if some of these birds are harvested with the up coming season, can a person eat them without any worries. I was advised at this time they did not know.
