Just be aware that the State of Washington has a law that NO non-Citizens can handle a gun, even as a guest shooter with a US Citizen. This came up when a dufus from the UK was dumb enough to post a blog with pictures and discussion of his shooting at a range in WA.
[Disclaimer: I live on the East Coast, so I don't know if the WA law may allow non-Citizens with "green cards" to shoot or not. The guy from the UK was in WA for 1 week at a business conference, and his actions were definitely illegal per WA law.]

Idaho will recognize any permit from anywhere, as it should be, for anyone who holds one.

Check 18USC922 (Title 18 of the US Code, Part I, Chapter 44, Section 922). Pay particular attention to paragraphs (d) (5) (B), (g) (5) (B), (s) (3) (B) (v) (II), and (y) (2). Non-immigrant aliens, who are not required to obtain a nonimmigrant visa, are exempt from the general prohibitions on alien possession of firearms and ammunition if they are in possession of a valid hunting license or a permit lawfully issued in the United States. They still have to complete a Form 6NIA and obtain an import permit to bring them across the border. They still have to be in the country for 90 days to purchase. ICE covers the border, BATF covers the firearms. Federal exemptions that allow carry within the U.S. do not trump state laws that prohibit carry by aliens within those states. So, one might be able to cross the border in Vermont, but still not carry within the state of New York. You need to check with a lawyer who knows the U.S. Code, ICE Customs and Border Security, and BATF regulations.
