    I am 8 months new to Southern Idaho and live in Burley. I have the Sawtooth range in my backyard but was looking for some help on where the Elk are. I went up last weekend and saw some signs but nothing telling me where their going. Any ideas on where to go or tips would be greatly appreciated. Thx

    Are you scouting or preparing to hunt this fall? Units 54 and 55 are controlled hunts only for bulls. 54 has an A tag general hunt for anterless within a very specific boundary.

    My son has a tag for a cow. We checked with fish and game and only the forest service land in 54 is off limits. All of the areas on the Owoyhee Hills is open. Thx
