Well that explains a lot about the hunting pressure with all this 😻running around you speak of. Secret is out. No wonder everyone is moving to Idaho.

I lion hunted down there close to 20 years ago and went up by Atlanta. Just a friendly reminder that there can be a few naked cougars around the hot springs driving up there. One scared the crap out of me 😂 the cougars from town are dangerous! We did happen to find one nice mountain lion but be careful around those hot springs! Have a good hunt I always wanted to try it for deer once I mean can 10 to 15000 hunters all be wrong?

You let some cougars scare you.🤣
   


Donít judge a man till you have been in his shoes! Yes it was scary but I donít really want to talk about it 😂

What season? I have never been there for rifle. Archery season I am 1 for 3 deer, although the last season I hunted it I passed a couple good opportunities. Areas with high elk number are heavily trafficked. By simply steering clear of areas with good elk populations I saw no one.

The sheer volume of ground is impressive. Be prepared to cover lots of it with glass and boots to find the pockets.

Going rifle season so I doubt I will get as lucky on the hunting pressure but thatís alright itís to be expected at this point I suppose. You day hiking or spike camping on your archery hunts?

I live in Idaho, hunt 39 archery each year. You for sure have your work cut out for you. What are the dates for your hunt? I know you said October but can you hunt until the end of the month?

How many days do you plan to be there?

Did Idaho 39 sell out?

Yes 39 has sold out, believe all non-res idaho quotas have been met.

We'll be there hopefully on the opener on the 10th and get 7-9 days to hunt. He's got a Peaches Ridge Bull Elk tag now so He'll have to head for that WA hunt that opens on the 25th with a couple scouting days prior. Did want to hunt 39 closer to the end of the month but the special elk permit drawing in WA changed that plan.

Nope youíre not wrong there. As archerykraze said I was thrown a curveball going to have to bend some dates around a bull tag in Washington. Would like to have been there toward the end but just gonna make due with the timeframe I got. As of now Iím gonna plan on the 10th for 7 to 9 days +/- pending my wife serving me with divorce papers over hunting Idaho Washington and Montana back to back to back.  :sry: :dunno:

Gosh poor guy with a peaches tag. We are all really sympathetic to your "problem"  :chuckle:

Peaches sucks. You should probably turn your tag back in  :chuckle:

If a trail is listed as no dirt bikes allowed, people in Idaho do not give a crap and will ride their bikes anywhere a bike can go. I doubt Idaho even enforces it. I've hunted 39 before and that was my experience. And I now own a dirt bike lol.
