An article came up on my feed this morning, but it requires a subscription, they dont have a guest subscription. I was wondering if someone from Idaho had the full article?

Texas brothers mum on land plans

Billionaires Farris and Don Wilks have purchased thousands of acres in Idaho County, and some locals say they have restricted access to their property

According to the Idaho County Assessor's Office, beginning in 2008, Farris and Dan Wilks of Cisco, Texas, started purchasing ranches, including the Evergreen Land and Cattle Co., owned by the Hitchcock family, and the Robbins-France ranch in western Idaho County, worth a combined total of $2.4 million. The final transaction took place in September...

I saw this as well, very disturbing...I know hate them twice as much as when they were just doing it in Montana. I've hunted this area quite a bit...bastards.

I don't think buying the Hitchcock ranch will impact any access, there was none before. Tho I know a handful of people that were able to access the Hitchcock ranch......prolly over now.
