I wish I was still living over there.  We usually hunted bucks until Thanksgiving.  The farmers in the area have always told me that Thanksgiving is rut time in north Idaho.  I would be over there now but ended up getting lucky on a buck in October.

Anyone having any luck yet? Day 3 for me today and I've seen more moose than deer. Hunting units 5 and 6 out of St Marie's.

Same for us on deer/moose and we've hunted several spots up along the St Joe's river drainage. Im heading home tonight to work for a couple days before heading back over on Thanksgiving to try and fill our tags.

 We started out north of Bonners ferry four days ago. We hunted quite a few different spots and started heading south the last two days. Saw grizzly tracks, tons of wolf tracks, cougar tracks, and a few deer tracks.  We did not see hardly any deer. Not even driving at night crossing the roads, none -hit on the roads, and only turned up three small one and a half year-old bucks only one of which was where we couldíve even shot it. Very few does also. We did see a few cow moose and 7 mulies. We tried just about all of it sitting and watching hiking 10+ miles in a day, rattling and just driving around. Didnít seem to matter what we didOverall it was very disappointing and really Hope We Draw Montana next year because Iím not looking forward to trying to fill it in with something else again like we did this year.

Passed on 6 bucks so far, all dinks.  Finally had a really nice buck in at 33 yards on Saturday, but I was unable to seal the deal and he caught a whiff of me and left without a shot opportunity.  I could hear a buck grunting on the bench below me towards sunset, but could not get him or the doe he was chasing to come any closer.  Had a big doe ghost past me last night at 45 yards, but even though I still had 4 minutes of legal shooting time left I could not clearly see my front sight so I did not pull the trigger.  Got 4 more days starting on Thursday to fill two tags.

Headed over Weds. evening to hunt Thursday and Friday.  Really hoping the rut is still going. First two days of actual hunting for me this season between having Washington and Idaho deer and elk tags.  As they say....stuff happens.  Just looking to put some meat in the freezer so if anybody has intel  I'd certainly be all ears. At this point I'm  planning on hunting the St. Maries and St. Joe River general area to the east, but certainly open to suggestions.
May also try the late muzzleloader season for elk the following week in unit 5.  Anybody ever have any luck on that hunt?
