Roy is right on here. The elk numbers in the Selway are so low and the country has such limited access that unless I had an outfitter I wouldn't waste my time and money on that hunt. I hunted it about 5 years ago for a couple of days. I saw one elk, a calf that was dead in the creek being chewed on by 2 white wolves and 1 black one. The Idaho Fish and Game have been working feverishly to reduce wolf numbers in that area which means that things are horrible.
If things are only really bad, they'll smile at you, as if you're an idiot, and tell you that things are actually quite peachy.
