Idaho Democratic gubernatorial hopeful Jerry Brady and Republican nominee Butch Otter finally had a debate of sorts.
It turns out they differ considerably on conservation issues. Otter’s lack of clarity on the out-of-state-funded “property rights” Proposition 2 was troublesome. They also differed on Wilderness and Otter made it clear that while he might sign a bill prohibiting “canned” elk hunts, he would most likely not be a leader on the issue.

Although they didn’t discuss it, Otter has been very strongly anti-wolf.
Added later. This election race, more than any other in Idaho will determine the future of Idaho’s immense wildlife population.
