Hi, I live in boise and I was wondering if there were some good waterfowl hunting opportunities within 1-2 hours from here, thank you

waterfowl hunting

Answer

 

Many hunters work the shoreline and islands on the Snake and Payette Rivers, as well as the ponds on the WMAs and elsewhere.  Jump shooting can be had in various ditches, creeks, rivers, or ponds across the region.  Lake Lowell provides duck hunting opportunity as do farm fields around the valley.  Access on private land is through permission only.  Shoreline of Cascade lake provides some hunting this time of year as well, especially when the northerns move south.  Good luck!
