HUNTING AND TRAPPING IN IDAHO
HUNTING AND TRAPPING IN IDAHO ó Do you think it would pay to go into northern Idaho to hunt and trap mountain lions, coyotes, wolves, lynx and wildcats for the bounty? Would I be required to take out a license to hunt these animals? Would a .30-30 carbine be all right for the above named animals?
It would depend partly on what you mean by making it pay. If you are a good hunter and trapper and a hard, systematic worker, you can make a living at it, I presume, but those qualities are necessary for successful hunting and trapping everywhere. I donít know what bounties are paid on these animals in Idaho, but I donít think that such a valuable fur animal as the lynx should ever be hunted except in winter, when the fur is good. Success de pends on so many things that I could not say whether you would be successful there. I donít know whether I could make it pay if I were to try it, and not knowing you, I would know even less o your capabilities. In a place where there is as much wild animal life as in northern Idaho the right man can make a living by hunting every time.
You will not be required to purchase a license to hunt these animals. The .30-30 carbine will be all a very good arm for the purpose.
