    Well, not very far. Mine was right at 300 yards and my son Kyle's was at 140yards. We were fortunate, sometimes the distances in this unit are just plain crazy.

    Close or far, still gotta put those bulls down. Being able to shoot long distances is just a nice option to have. Nice shooting

    I can't believe it, but my son and I both drew again for this unit. The sad thing is, the Idaho Fish & Game is ruining this unit with all the extra cow tags they are issuing on top of increasing the bow tags and the regular cow tags the past several years. What a terrible mistake. Seems like no one in Gov't can make a good decision these days. I am still excited about this coming year in Hell's Canyon though it may prove more difficult to find success for a number of reasons including how dry it is.

    Could you float hunt that area?

    You would be better off Jet boating, but you could float it too; or should I say i know some who have. The biggest problem is you have to climb each trip and coming down to the river in most places is hard with meat. Plus, the elk are around middle elevation & higher most of the time.
