Re: Self guided elk hunt

Idaho is a better deal than MT for out of staters. The seasons are earlier with a rifle, and they are shorter which is no concern if you are on a vacation. The tags are cheaper. Elk are generally still bugling during their rifle season. I am pretty sure you are guaranteed a tag there. If not there, Colorado is the old standby with more elk than MT and ID put together I think.

With the wolves moving in and eating everything with hooves, is it really still worth the time and effort to hunt elk in Idaho?

Troutslayer,

Yep, its still worth it to chase an elk in Idaho. Though the wolves have make a notable impact on both numbers and habits.

Plus there's always the opportunistic happenstance wolf shot that may present itself.

Also, great signature.

Re: Self guided elk hunt

If you DIY, I STRONGLY recommend, at the very least, listening to all tips locals on this site and others may be willing to give you. Better, if you find a guy "with a cousin" or "a friend" out there who will help out or let you tag along, by all means take advantage of it.

Elk are nothing like the whitetails you probably hunt. Hunting them is totally different. I learned more in two days of hunting with a local last year than I would have learned in a lifetime on the internet.
