Idaho first time
« on: August 26, 2019, 10:34:41 AM »
Well I just got off the phone with Idahoís game department and purchased my very first Idaho deer tag. Iím thrilled to say the least. I will be in Holbrook Idaho working potato harvest up until the season starts. I will have a ton of time to give it a shot! If anyone wants to comment or message me any tips Iíd be super appreciative. I have downloaded Idaho on onx and already starting to check it out. Anyways i will keep everyone updated! I just finished my last quarter of college this past month so i need to go blow some steam and hunt! Good luck to all as 2019 season is almost here!

Congrats. Idaho is amazing and miserable all at the same time. She does not give up good animals easily, butthey are there for the taking.  What general area are you looking at?

I have done some research and since i will be south east corner for job i will start there. And slowly make my way north west! I still have a ton of info to go over from the regs as well as onx so no super specifics yet. Regardless I am excited for the experience!

Currently working in Idaho until harvest is over. I have been in unit 56 scouting slightly but havenít turned anything up. I think the game plan will be to hunt unit 50 and then head west all the way back to Washington hunting along the way. Hoping to be able to post pics!

I'm hunting the SW area, am finding lots of elk, but very few deer so far.

Well a little update. I hunted from the opener until yesterday. I have been seeing 30-70 deer a day. I am in the south east part of the state. On the second morning I saw a very nice buck that I had in my crosshairs but it was at a full run, so i didnt have a good enough shot. Yesterday i saw a small 3x4 and did not shoot. I am pumped to get after it next weekend in a new area.

Good for you. You found the deer I have been looking for. I was up in the top of 39 and saw 3 does in 3 days. Lots of wolf tracks. Deer numbers are destroyed in our old area. Not the way it used to be.
Good luck

If you don't mind PMing where you're seeing the wolf tracks, I'll be after one later on. The more we can get the more it helps the herds
