    Last night I drove my sister in law and brother in law to the St. Louis airport so that they could fly to Boise this morning for his job. Gonna be there for two years at least. They may stay out there for good. Was wondering what the fowling is like out there and if it would be worth my time to try hunting the area if we were to visit for a few days? Not looking for any spots. Just curious if we’d be better off just visiting the whole time. Thanks in advance men.

    whether you get good insights of the hunting from here on the board or not, i think if you hit the right front and get the right conditions on the migration you will see unparalleled U S waterfowl hunting in that area. Finding the X and getting the right conditiones is as variable a game as anywhere else in the country.

    Thank you sir. I’ve lived in Illinois for most of my life and haven’t hunted anywhere else but here. Gives me some food for thought.

    I am from the other side of Idaho but yes, there is decent waterfowling in Southern Idaho. It is public and can be crowded. Your bro-in-law is going to need a boat.

    He doesn’t hunt much at all. I’ve taken him a few times here in Illinois but he works so dang much that he never really has time. Now his job took him to Idaho and I was just looking to see if it would be a possibility out there if we were to visit. Thanks for your response

    Being that it is Idaho, I'd say there is a very good chance he'll run into guys willing to take a guy out for a day. That might be the easiest way to go.

    Btw, housing is really tight here. Did his employer help him find a place?

    Yes. I dunno if they found it for him or not but they bought a house in Kuna. Morton paid for his relocation fees and the move fees with the moving company. They said it was super hard to find a home right now with everyone moving in and then the California ppl running from the fires.
