Does a non-resident need a hunting license to pack a gun when riding an ATV or when target practicing?

I own land in Idaho. Do I need a hunting license to shoot at targets on my land? I ride ATV's and carry a hand gun for protection. Do I need a hunting license for this on public land?

Answer

If you are not hunting, you are not required to purchase a hunting license..
