Trapping was the first job that Idaho had to offer and it brought a lot of wealth to those that were willing to brave the terrain and unmapped territory of Idaho. This was back when there were no maps, roads or towns. The area was rough and the terrain was not easy to travel in. There were seven native tribes when settlers came from the east that were already living there and that was it.
