I fly over this state...

Would it be ok to do what I had to to survive in the wilderness if my plane goes down and I had no food or shelter can I make a shelter can I fish or make a trap or start a fire without going to jail when you found me?

Answer

Although there is no provision in Title 36 of Idaho Code for the taking of wildlife other than allowed by Statute or  Commission Rule, I'm most confident that no one would be prosecuted for doing what is reasonable and neccessary to survive in such an emergency situation.
