Re: Idahoans sound off.

Yes Sir...I look forward to it for sure. Any wolf chasing going on in the area?

Re: Idahoans sound off.

Yes there certainly are. Wolves, coyotes, mountain lions, black bears, grizzlies. I've personally seen all but the grizzly, and have seen trail camera pictures of them from near our place, so it is just a matter of time until one of them makes a personal appearance.

There is no shortage of predators in the area.

Re: Idahoans sound off.

Are you folks baiting or calling or both?

Re: Idahoans sound off.

It is illegal to bait for bear in that hunting unit.

We do trap wolves in there after the bears have gone to den for the winter. I've only assisted making and carrying in snares so far. There is a mandatory trapping class you have to attend before being able to set snares and I have not taken it.

I personally have not hunted that area much at all. There is a good sized group of us that hunt together for elk and bear in a different game unit so I just watch them on my cameras and laugh at the names my wife gives the bulls every year. This year we have 5 bulls that make regular appearances on our trail cams.

There is a fair amount of game in the area. Big game and predators alike.

It is rough country and to hunt it properly you need time to scout and uninterupted time to commit to hunting once the season opens. I'm not in a place in my career to have either.

In a couple more years though it will be all I do

Re: Idahoans sound off.

Good info!! I'm retired so time is mine and hunting and fishing is the two main reasons we're moving out to the Sandpoint area. We lived in AK for 3 years and I suspect ID is pretty much like AK for hunting...just smaller sized critters.

I don't want to horn in on your hunting party but I would like to sit and talk to some experienced hunter in the area. I have been a Hunter Safety instructor since the mid-80's in AK and MD and will probably continue in ID once I get setteled. I also teach bow hunting and I'm a flight instructor so most any excuse will get me in the woods.

Thanks for the insight and I'm a sponge on new data!!

Re: Idahoans sound off.

I thought for sure I had replied to this thread already, but searching through the current 24 pages, I didn't see my name so.....

I currently reside in Middleton, but grew up in Grangeville.

Not too keen on the Sheep Fire ruining my elk hunting season now...so I need to go exchange my tag for something closer.
