You hit it on the spot. That's what so many were really wondering at the time and still wondering. At the time, the Farm Bureau said it was a property rights issue and that a private land owner, on his own land should not have to have a license to outfit and guide some one on his/her own property. The only ones that it sat well with were Idaho's legislators who were farmers themselves and when I looked at what kind of money the Farm Bureau put into those legislators pockets during campaigns, for Idaho, it was sizeable money. Go figure.lol If I remember correctly, very few actual private land owners even testified for the bill compared to those opposed, including the Fish and Game, Idaho Outfitters and Guides Licensing Board. Multiple sportsmen testified against it and we submitted a petition with over 500 signatures, all Idaho Sportsmen, on it to them and it still went through. We even had a couple of legislators we thought in our pocket to vote against it and they turned when it came down to the actual vote. So, what does the Farm Bureau get, the Idaho Legislators in their pockets once again for money and who knows what all. For example, I talked multiple times to my local Legislator, Steve Bair to try and convince him to vote against this. No luck and here is what he gets after all the dust settles - Senator Steve Bair, (R-Blackfoot) District 31, has received the Idaho Farm Bureau Federation’s (IFBF) “Friend of Agriculture” award. http://senatorbair.com/ Oh ya did I say he was a farmer too!!! Don't say money doesn't buy our legislators.
