How is the hunting around Stanley and Challis?
There are elk up Morgan Creek and down the other side in Panther Creek.

Re: Idaho Elk Hunting???


What part of the Panhandle are you moving to? What has been said is pretty straight talk. There are elk here. There are 300+ bulls here, but not many of them. While the elk numbers and quality are OK it is in fact not like it was 10 years ago and especially not like it was 20 years ago. I am in the Couer D" Alene area and was born in Orofino.

So it's a fact that hunting here is not like it used to be because there was several bulls that would go over 300 and most of the time you could get to them within 2 miles of a road. Your right any elk is good but shooting a nice bull every year is and was better. Besides shooting calf's isn't gonna help the population. Theres plenty of elk in the panhandle just not alot of quality ones.
For what it's worth, no I wasn't referring to you linsmechanic. My point, being a recent transplant(5 years) is that so many long time residents get caught up on what was, when many of us coming from other states will find that this is a great place to hunt big game, even if it isn't what it once was. I get especially annoyed at the doomsday wolf folks. In 5 years I have noticed the effect of wolves on elk and very much would like to see us be able to thin the wolves, but I saw a HUGE impact on the muleys this last year due to just one winter. I hope we get a good winter survival for deer and elk and new laws to manage wolves. I'm rambling, so I'll sign off and just way welcome and enjoy!

OK Chris, enough messing around, I think it is us here in the Panhandle who should be asking YOU where to elk hunt ! I am located in Sandpoint and there are lots of elk opportunities, though the largest numbers are South in the St Joe areas. You didn't mention whether you are North (Bonners Ferry) or South (Coeur d'Alene/Wallace)?
