The private access to that BLM land got closed because the road crosses over private land.
It's private property. Until recently, it was open to the public and hunting, as long as hunters asked permission first. Reportedly, some hunters did not and even threatened the landowner when he confronted them.
The other areas in that region are a mix of BLM, state, and private land. The BLM office in Boise has a map that shows who owns which parcels of a land, although it still is a bit difficult to determine out there where one parcel of land ends and the other starts.
Must be a very beutiful place in there! The hightest is an Andean mountain called "Torreón de la Cuesta".
