Howdy guys I'm moving to Boise come June and was just wondering about the hunting in the area? It looks like there are endless opportunities throughout the region for public land hunting which is primarily what I do. How are the winters there? Do they usually show up pretty early, and you're breaking ice for the majority of the season or? I'll probably invest in a boat for the river when I get there, and do a lot of scouting up until the season kicks off. Do you guys get specks in this area often? I've hunted 22 years for waterfowl, have all my own gear, my own dogs, and minus extravagant field spreads. I'm one of the few hunters that hunt the east side of the sierras for ducks as I stay away from the large crowds in the central valley. I'm used to hunting ducks in subzero weather and heavy storms so weather is no hindrance for me. Just curious about your guys season, and looking for a potential hunting partner. Maybe some people I can shoot trap and fish with during the off season. Any information helps. Thanks in advance!
