Idaho Fish and Game

Marcia Franklin talks with Cal Groen, the newly appointed director of Idaho's Department of Fish and Game.

The Idaho Fish and Game Commission selected Groen to replace former Director Steve Huffaker, who retired after leading the agency for nearly five years. Groen, a 17-year veteran of the agency, has held several prominent positions within the department, the most recent being supervisor of the Clearwater region, a post he held for nine years.

Director Groen, who will manage an agency with more than 500 employees and a budget of more than $74 million, discusses his priorities for the coming fiscal year. He also talks with Franklin about issues such as salmon recovery, wolf management, and non-game species.
