my suggestion would be to drive.....with all the equipment you will need for a waterfowl hunt, it will be less nerve racking on you and the dog...I made the drive from Bonham Tx to Boise ( DFW- OKC-ALBQ- Durango- Moab-SLC-Boise)..good roads all the way even in winter (snowed outside of Ogden UT)

would also depend on what part of Idaho you are hunting....it might be easier to fly into SLC and drive in from there since there are more non stop flights from SLC to major cities in TX

Bon- That was the plan. Fly direct to SLC and then drive up in a rental. Planning to hunt the ashton and island park area with a friend who lives there. Luckily, he can provide most if not all of the gear. My time frame is limited or would probably consider driving more heavily.

Did you hunt while in Boise? If so, how was it?
There are more geese inside the city limits of Boise than outside,at some parks and schools they are a nuisance...I hunted near Payette/Fruitland just a couple of miles from the FT grounds just off the river...but the best goose hunting was about an hour from Boise on some private property that belonged to one of my brother's patients...it was a cut corn field that the birds would not leave:D

there are a lot of geese in the area you are hunting,saw them all along the interstate between I Falls and Pocatello not too far from the FT grounds in Rigby and the NWR

We had a mild winter last season. Hopefully that will happen again this year.
No offense but the hunting season was horrible last year because the birds never appeared, let it snow and freeze, makes them easier to find :D:D
