General Elk Hunting / Re: When to Scout
« Last post by cohunter14 on Today at 08:23:36 AM »
Not sure if you are talking scouting for your archery or rifle hun, but either way I would plan on heading up two days earlier. If it's archery, I'd be getting out and just doing some road bugling and trying to locate some elk that way without getting too far into the woods. And if it's rifle, I'd be trying to find some glassing locations to get to and see if I could locate some that way before the season. A lot can change in one or two weeks, but they shouldn't move nearly that much in one or two days. Just my two cents!

When is your season? For me our archery season starts Sept. 6th so I would scout a couple days before the season starts. If I were to do it a couple weeks before that is about the time bulls are gathering there ladies so if you find elk a couple weeks before the season the bulls may have gone out looking for love. If I were going to scout weeks before I would be looking more for cows than for bulls and if I were going to scout a couple days before I would try to do as much from a distance with glasses so I didn't run them off like you said.
General Elk Hunting / When to Scout
« Last post by StrongTower on August 14, 2020, 03:21:59 PM »
Hi everyone,

I am trying to figure out the best time to scout for the upcoming season. I have been putting most of my time into scouting my archery season location (e-scouting and boots on the ground). I have less time for scouting my rifle location. I have done e-scouting but still need to get boots on the ground. My schedule has changed a lot and has really pressed me for time to scout. I am trying to decide if I should go scout a 1-2 weeks before season, or if I should show up 2 days before season to scout. My major fear of scouting before season is pushing animals out of the area before opening day.

Any advice/recommendations would be much appreciated.
Thanks for your time and help.

Why not just go in there on your own? Do some research and get in there. I'd probably take the entire month of September off if I were you. lol Congrats!

I've been struck by lightning - in the form of a 2020 Idaho Super Hunt Elk tag.  Would love to start out in mid-Sept in the Unit 40 hunt: 5 rifle tags, 10 archery tags.  I'm a rifle hunter and have never had the chance to hunt in the rut before.  For some mysterious reason, neither outfitter there will return the email and vmail messages I began leaving them in June.  Any recommendations?  Thanks.

I have hunted 161 a fair amount. It has gotten pretty busy up there in the past few years. Lots of beetle kill. PM me.
General Elk Hunting / Idaho panhandle where to get info
« Last post by Nwelkhntr on August 08, 2020, 08:03:55 PM »
My buddy and I will be hunting the lower part of the Idaho panhandle this year and I was hoping to get info on area as far trailheads and if there has been recent griz sightings in the area. My question is besides contacting the ranger station are there other places to gather info on the areas we plan to hunt? We are currently using OnX for e-scouting but would like some more first hand info if its available, so where else could we look for information?

I'm curious how much you get for her. I have a high mileage model I'm looking to upgrade.
