 Elk hunting info doesn't come easy. The best way is to find a unit with moderate success, put your boots on and go. Google earth is a great way to scout an area before going. One thing that is consistent about Idaho is it is steep in all units!

put cams on springs / ponds.  If it stays dry you are golden.  If it snows like this year then punt.

Im not sure what kind of info your after but there are elk where you find em. That being said no one is gonna find them for you. A unit with poor stats still has elk.....are you willing to go the extra mile? If so....that poor unit may be great to you. Lace up the boots a go find em. The dreamy honey holes are out there but no one is gonna tell you where they are at. Im at a lost off all these people asking for advice. Every hunt is a experience, its all what you make it. Idaho is a great state. Respect it, learn it, and you will live it. Learn your area, and you will have sucess. Dont set you standards to high.

I am hunting Idaho in 2018 as well.  What I did was look at harvest stats then just rolled the dice and bought a tag for an area.  I have been going over paper maps and OnXmaps since I bought the tag a month ago.  I will be happy to see an elk but me and my partner didn't set the bar to high since it is our first out of state hunt.  We are heading over in May to try and get boots on the ground and throw up some cameras and then we are planning on heading back in August to check and place more cameras.  Hopefully with all the E scouting it will pay off with a couple bulls.

I bought the Elk University subscription and have been going through that as well and he has a ton of great info.

I know people don't give out to much info and that's why I have been just looking at maps and anxiously waiting to get into the area this spring.

Do your research and have fun is the advise I will give you as I am in the same boat.

We really need not talk about Idaho. To many more Washington plates over that state line and they might just gate it all off. :chuckle:
