Every game warden I know has a supervisor for his district or region. That's the guy you need to talk to. I'm not sure how it works in ID but here's what I would do in my state:
Call the regional DNR office where I will be hunting and ask to speak to the chief LEO, specifying that I need a clarification of a rule. If he says it's legal, write down his title, name, date and time.
Most officers aren't going to go against their boss, especially if you are polite, cooperative and have your bases covered.
To a much greater extent than most mechanical devices, firearms are terribly unforgiving of any overconfidence, complacency or negligence.
