    Idaho does not have a statute commonly known as a stop-and-identify law, though Blackfoot may.

    Idaho enjoys state preemption of gun laws. Title 18 Chapter 33 seems to cover most of it.

    You do not need any license to openly carry any firearm in the state of Idaho, whether or not your are in the field. You do need a license to hunt. I would be cautious about wearing the latest Realtree or Mossy Oak patterns, and creeping stealthily through the woods, while carrying a long gun in hunting areas without a hunting license, but your mileage may vary.

    You do not need any license or permit to conceal a legal rifle or shotgun.

    If you are within a vehicle, within city limits, and your weapons are loaded, they must not be concealed if you do not have a permit. Loaded is considered ammo+gun, whether or not a round is chambered. You may openly carry a loaded, chambered long gun in a vehicle. You may openly carry a loaded, chambered handgun on your hip or other "plain sight" location within a vehicle. If you are within a vehicle, in unincorporated areas, you may conceal a weapon without a permit. You may not carry it concealed, on your person, while on foot.

    This LEO is an IDIOT; I would have asked him to show me the law requiring it. I would also like to have his supervisor present when he showed me so he could see what a dofus he has working for him.
