Re: Idaho Elk

53 is a lot tougher hunt than it looks. Not excercise wise, but in time invested. The short range requirements, along with the openness of the country make for some difficult stalking. Road hunters don't make things any easier. But then road hunters have very little sucsess in this unit. But with a 5 month season, you have plenty of time to hunt. Appears so far that the wolf pack in the area has moved back further north. I have only seen one track this fall.
