Welcome to the forum. I have never hunted in Idaho so I can't be much help to you, but, have you called the area biologists and game wardens in the area you want to hunt? That's always a good start. Read the Eastmans MRS section too. Be sure to ask the Idaho folks about the wolf population in the area, it may be significant. Part of the fun of the hunt is the time spent researching it.
We have some outstanding forum members that are Californians so you won't be tooo harshly judged!
Happy Thanksgiving and good hunting to you.
