Helicopters are being used for the next several months to gather information about elk, bighorn sheep and deer herds in Central Idaho.

Bret Stansberry, a biologist with the Idaho Department of Fish and Game, said the helicopters will fly low to allow researchers to get a good look at the animals. Flights are planned near Salmon, Challis Pahsimeroi, the Lemhi Valley and along the Idaho-Montana border.
