I'm doing a back country hunt archery Elk in Idaho this year. Planning on going with my son who is ion the Military in S.C. He might be switching jobs this summer and might not be able to go. The 3 guys I mostly hunt with cant make the trip so I'll probably go solo but never know


I'm going to central Idaho East of Sun Valley. Haven't hunted there for 15 years though, the Wolves took a huge toll on the Deer but they are making a comeback since hunting Wolves opened but the Elk are doing good. We took a few small bulls there in a couple years of hunting there and I missed a 360" with my stick


I would possibly be interested in talking about hooking up

This year will be my second season since moving out west to Washington. I'm also looking to get an out of state hunt this year and looking for a partner or two. I can hunt archery or modern fire arms, back country or from a camp site. Willing to hunt elk or deer or even both. A little bit about myself: I'm retired from the military and have lots of free time. Still do my physical training anywhere from 4 to 6 times a week, so I can definitely hold my own. Already have all of my gear for camp or back country. Drive a 4 wheel drive truck with a topper (So I can do mobile camp also). I'm 50 years old, not afraid of the occasional beer. Have a big enough yard for archery practice and wooded property to put in a decent size home archery range with tree stands, blinds and walking lanes, and one steep hill to shoot both up and down hill. I live about an hour north of Seattle (just outside of Marysville) if anyone wants to get together for some archery practice or just sit down for a beer and talk about hunting the west side of the country (because I'm still cutting my teeth on hunting the wild west), shoot me a message. It's usually just myself and my trusty dog Elvis because my wife is pretty busy with work during the week. Elvis is a 12 year old Weimaraner that doesn't ask for much, just a good nap and the occasional treat. Let me know.    Dave
It's only trouble if you get caught. Otherwise it is an adventure.

Are the Idaho tags OTC?

Most of the archery stuff is. The trickier thing to navigate is the zones that are under more restrictive quotas. They're OTC but some sell out in under an hour.

I know that area. If you've not been in there for 15 years be ready for a reality shift, it's a lot busier than it use to be and the age class on bulls is down. Bigger than wolves was the 15/16 winter kill on deer. Most of central Idaho had 70-80 percent mortality and numbers are still a few easy winters away from coming back.
