Re: Idaho unit 21
I know it is not unit 21 but it is close. I hunt in 21a and have since 1983. The elk numbers are way down and have been going that way for sometime now. I am thinking the wolves have something to do with it. I gun hunted for 3 weeks last year and only saw several spikes and a rag horn.
I have met and become good friends with guys that hunt there every year, some I reseect as very serious hunters and they put bulls on the groung every year. But not last fall, it was just like the elk have vanished, very littel sign. I am hoping the the wolf hunts are bring them into check, and hope that the elk numbers will come back some day. But i might not see it in my time.
I know the area I hunt ( around gibbonsville) is some of the roughest ground I have ever hunted, and the hills keep getting steeper every year.
If I was looking for a place to hunt I would not look into 21 and 21a.
just my .02 though...
