Hunting has been banned in this area on August 21st, but why?


The banned only affects hunters in the area of the Idaho National Laboratory. It's a 890 square-mile federal nuclear facility that is directly on the "path of totality."


The reason the hunting ban has been put into place is that tons of people are expected to watch the eclipse along the roads in that area and they want to keep everyone as safe as possible.


According to KTVB, you should take the ban seriously because if you're caught you could face federal legal action.
