History of outdoors and exploration in Idaho

The state's exploration history dates back to the early 19th century with the Lewis and Clark expedition. Their journey through Idaho's rugged terrain marked the beginning of a long tradition of adventure and exploration in this region. Idaho's vast wilderness, including its majestic mountains, roaring rivers, and serene lakes, quickly became a playground for early pioneers and settlers. In the mid-20th century, outdoor recreation in Idaho gained significant momentum. The advent of national parks and protected areas like Yellowstone National Park and Sawtooth National Recreation Area made Idaho an irresistible destination for hikers, campers, hunters, and fishermen alike. The state also saw an increase in skiing activities with the establishment of world-class ski resorts such as Sun Valley. Fishing has always been a significant part of Idaho's outdoor culture. With over 26,000 miles of rivers and streams teeming with various fish species like trout and salmon, it's no wonder that anglers from around the world are drawn to this region. Today, Idaho continues to be a premier destination for outdoor recreation. Its rich history combined with its diverse landscapes offers endless opportunities for adventure seekers. Whether it's hiking through dense forests, fishing in crystal clear waters or hunting in vast wilderness areas - Idaho offers an unparalleled experience for every outdoor enthusiast. Idaho is a large agricultural state with $8.5B of ag production, and only 29.6% of the land privately owned by farmers and ranchers. The major crops are cow/calf production and dairy products, potatoes, wheat and hay. When planning hunting trips to Idaho on private lands like farms & ranches, it's important to understand some key dates for farmers and ranchers. Ranchers in this region usually do their calving, brandings and vaccinations anywhere from February through June and will ship cattle in late fall. During these times, they are extremely busy and may be harder to communicate with. Farmers in Idaho will usually begin planting their potatoes in late April through May and then will harvest their crops in September, and October depending on weather.

Popular outdoor activities in Idaho

Idaho, the "Gem State", with landscape ranging from rugged mountains and dense forests to sparkling lakes and rushing rivers, offers a range of opportunities for outdoor recreation. One of the most popular activities in Idaho is fishing, with over 26,000 miles of rivers and streams teeming with various species like trout, bass, and sturgeon. The Snake River is particularly renowned among anglers for its abundant fish populations and stunning scenery. In addition to fishing, Idaho's wilderness also beckons hikers and mountain bikers. With over 19,000 miles of trails winding through national forests and state parks like Sawtooth National Forest or Ponderosa State Park, adventurers can immerse themselves in the state's natural beauty while getting an invigorating workout. For those seeking a thrill, white-water rafting on the Payette River or rock climbing in the City of Rocks National Reserve are exhilarating options. Hunting is another favored pastime in Idaho. The state boasts some of the best big game hunting in the U.S., with species such as elk, deer, and bear roaming its wild lands. Whether you're a seasoned hunter or a novice eager to learn, Idaho's vast wilderness areas provide an ideal setting for this challenging pursuit.
