I went spring bear hunting there many years ago out of Lochsa a few miles west of Missoula MT. Beautiful country, brook trout in the small streams, lots of bears. Saw several moose and deer. Had a great time. Never been there in the fall.

We have a place east of Missoula. Lochsa is some beautiful country. Iím a fisherman up there (summers only) though so not an expert on the best hunting areas.
Itís beautiful hunting country though.

Yes. Sept elk and Mulies. Probably going back this year depending on my draws.
Iím big fan of Idaho and itís people. Long drive though. Only thing I didnít see was a grizzly and cat. Saw mtn Goats, Blk Bear, moose, full curl rams, elk, mule deer, pronghorn and wolves. Fun trip but we where a deep 8 Miles from trail head. Oh and ton of grouse...

How far from Boise would be some decent Grouse hunting? My wifes childhood best friend moved up there about 10 years ago and she has been wanting to go up there and visit, I could drop her off and go spend a few days chasing grouse.

I've hunted the selkirk mountains twice and hiked it another. Absolutely love it and have a goal of owning a place there. Idaho is a lot like TX, in that most of the people I've met are great, it has a lot of great hunting and huge terrain changes.

Never have. Always meant to. I have some inside info from a guy that lives there on some better elk hunting spots. One of these days Iíll put it to use. Iíve heard a lot of bad things about the wolves up there in recent years. Donít know how much is true or just the sky falling.

I've hunted the Lemhi Mountains as well as the Bitterroots. Seems like there are only two directions to those mountains - straight up and straight down. Hunted the primitive area before the wolves. Beautiful country, good people. Pretty good hunting there as well.

Sorry to hear that. We really like for you to be successful if possible. On your hunt with Castle Creek, did you guys do it all from one back country camp. Shane Scott generally does a pretty good hunt both from the local ranch there at Baker and also the surrounding National Forest areas. I am from Idaho Falls, but always hunt up in the Salmon/Leadore areas for whitetails with my short range shotgun or muzzleloader. This year I saw a lot of elk and mule deer in late Oct.

No animals in Idaho. Itís a horrible state. I wouldnít go there! I actually graduated from High School in Idaho and trust me you wonít like it. I only go back every year.

Idaho got hammered and hammered hard, they had a virgin elk and mule deer population, current populations are wolf savoy and rebounding. Hunter Success rates are back on the rise.
