States do not extradite for misdemeanors. The process is too costly. Idaho is not going to pay to send a team of officers to come get you. That said, you ought to consider dealing with the warrant. Even if you never set foot in Idaho for the rest of your life, an active warrant can make your life very inconvenient. It can cost you your driving privileges, for example. It can hurt you when you look for housing or employment. It can keep you from getting certain government benefits like social security, unemployment.

Extradition is not a worry. But there's plenty else to be concerned about.
