Can I use an air rifle to hunt grouse around the lake Lowell area??

I had someone tell me that I could do it with an air rifle around lake Lowell but I know that it's a wildlife refuge so I just wanted to be sure before I did.

Answer: 

You can use any lethal means for forest grouse except they shall not be taken with a trap, snare, net or crossbow in Idaho.  However, the Deer Flat Wildlife Refuge is federally run and they have their own rules in addition to IDFG state laws.  You must contact Deer Flat Refuge managers to get the answer to this question as it relates to the refuge.
