I'm looking for very general info and advice on access to public waterways in Idaho. I've been at it for a long time and prefer to sort it out myself with scouting and running the rivers, etc. but I've never chased ducks in ID. Retired from the Army a few years ago after 23 years and moved back to the North Coast of Oregon. Access to waterfowl hunting is fantastic, but the constant rain and politics has me thinking about relocating. My top priority is relatively easy access to public hunting (don't tell my wife). Kids will have graduated and we're retired, so schools and employment aren't factors. Which parts of the state have good public access and a fair amount of birds? I'm not looking for a few "burners" a couple of times a season when the migration and conditions are just right. I try to hunt as much as possible and don't mind getting skunked, I've gotten past measuring success by the number of birds killed. I don't field hunt and prefer to be on the water, hunting mostly from the boat. Thanks a bunch in advance, and if anyone is headed to NW Oregon or SW Washington, I'd be happy to take you out for a hunt on the lower columbia.
