If anyone has a right to complain about big government it's the residents of Idaho! Most of their land is government owned. The rest of the land in Idaho is divided between public and private owners. Farmer and ranchers only own about 10% of Idaho’s land.
Nearly 40% of Idaho is covered by forests, which is more than any other state has. Over 4 million acres are wildlife and timber reserves and another 8 million acres don’t even have any roads. That is a lot of wilderness!
