So the wife and I are going on a road trip to look at houses or property to have a home built on around the Boise area. Somewhere North, Northwest or West of Boise is what we are thinking.

Any of you guys/gals that are transplants or have family or friends that are waterfowlers have any recommendations on nice towns to live; but also close to good duck and goose hunting.

Really would like a place on the banks of one of the rivers, Snake, Payette, and Boise to call home. Not against living on a lake front either.

May even consider the Spokane or CDA area only cuz I have friends in those areas and would be a little closer to our son in Washington.

Comments and opinions are greatly
appreciated !!!

I know its a bit further north but ....... my good friend transplanted to a place called St. Maries . Very Good waterfowl flyway, lots of public / timber company land to hunt . I saw more deer per square mile than I have ever seen. 2 rivers come together there. Has a number of lakes near-by.
The town has very little crime and just feels homey.
I could not get over the fact that everything there is cheaper than Kalifornia. From groceries to fuel etc. Of course the real estate is much cheaper.

I have been to southern Idaho , Liked the St. Maries area a lot better but you probably have your reasons for Boise . Best wishes ! I have been on the verge of going out of state for some years .

But , no matter what , leave the California political thinking behind or else you will have a very hard time getting along with most everyone.

If you get serious and lock down a place, I can give you local contacts. Live where you want to live. Workl where you have to work so you can hunt where you want to hunt...

In my case I left Mule deer and elk country so I could live on the family far, work a job that gives me a salary,bonus paid time off that I can use for week long backcountry adventures. I was not hunting as much as I would have liked living in the middle of it.....

buddy of mine and his brother both bought places right on the snake, some of the best duck hunting I have seen

they both live within a few miles of each other in Hammett, ID, and Tim even shot a bull elk on his last year
