There are a lot of different ways to hunt in Idaho. You may have an image of an old hunter stuck up in a deer blind, watching over a patch of food bait that will eventually bring a deer or two, and while this may be a fun and beneficial activity, it barely scratches the surface of what a hunter can do with his or her time in the wild. There are so many types of animals out there and so many ways to track and catch them (As long as you stay within the law and procure the proper license before you get started. The government has many options available to you, so unless you fancy yourself a poacher and chancing imprisonment, there is no need to work outside the law).

If there is one thing that Idaho has a lot of, it is rivers (You thought I was going to say potatoes. You were thinking it). Idaho has more rivers than any other state in the Union. They crisscross the land like a living thing’s vascular system, pumping water like blood to uncountable lakes and reservoirs, making sure humans and animals alike have what is absolutely necessary for life. As you might imagine, Idaho culture has grown to make sure these rivers and lakes are a vital part of that culture. Idahoans tend to go a little bit nuts at times for their rivers at times, and they spend a lot of time on them.

So much civilization has cropped up around the Snake, and so many people over the years have relied on the river in one way or another for the support of their livelihood or simply their lives. It is a life giving and life sustaining river, but it did not exactly start that way. In its natural state, it was still used to support human life like any other untamed river, but it was still a wild and powerful force that needed to be adjusted so that humans could use them efficiently and on a large scale. Along the Snake River, in addition to other, less obtrusive modifications, there are fifteen major dams that exist to control the course of the river,…
