Anybody have any reports from idaho?? My buddy and I are headed over to chase some screamers Saturday    :rockin:
My Brother in Law says they are on fire in the Priest Lake area that he controls.

That has not been my experience, or any of the guys I'm hunting with up here this year.  I have heard two bugles from a bull that we crowded, but that's it.  They're definitely not on fire here.

He has the advantage then.  I've been here since last Friday and have heard two bugles....

I have a buddy in central Idaho.
10 miles in to camp, no other hunters around.
Seeing a ton of elk and a lot of bulls.
No rut action.
Kinda weird.

He has lived in the area his entire life.  He is high up in DNR for that region.

Not hearing a bunch of favorable reports from NE Washington yet.  Anyone seeing much activity?  I've only seen one picture of an archery kill up here this season....?

Last two bulls I spotted were with cows. I got one to chuckle that's all I have heard all season.
