BOISE COUNTY — A pair of Texas billionaires, the Wilks brothers, are buying up private land across southwest Idaho and blocking access to public lands in some areas.

KTVB has been hearing from hundreds of you on social media: Many are enraged, or asking questions, or siding with the private property owners.

Boise County provided a map showing all the areas owned by DF Development - the company owned by Dan and Farris Wilks. The brothers are billionaires from Cisco, Texas who made their bucks in masonry and later the hydraulic fracking industry.
