I got my 1st choice, Colorado either sex Ranching For Wildlife tag, and I also got my 1st choice either sex deer archery tag. I am also thinking that I will get my 1st choice pronghorn rifle tag as well and should know within days on that one.
Gonna be a busy fall & early winter that is for sure, as I am also planing on getting an OTC antlerless elk archery tag, and likely picking up a leftover doe deer tag and maybe an OTC bear if I can match one up correctly with one of my other tags!
That's what I really love about Idaho. It's starts on August 30 and runs through November 23. I will have all of september off from work to chase moose, elk, deer, bear, lion, wolf, and turkey. Oh september can't came fast enough!
Over the years I have seen several elk and deer hides left in the woods by hunters and I have to wonder why they do this? I fully understand and agree about getting the hide off the animal as soon as possible to cool the meat, but why not pack out the hide with you and use it? As far as I know there are no state laws that require you to take the hide home, but to me why waste such a beautiful part of the animal? Some might think they have no use for the hide or it costs too much to tan....
