The natural gas industry is interested in mineral rights in a Northwest wildlife area. Aaron Kunz explains.
This month, the Idaho Fish and Game Commission authorized the state to auction off the mineral rights for nearly 400 acres in the Payette River Wildlife Management Area. The auction could take place in late July.
