None of my hunting crew got drawn I hear that Idaho does not have a drawing and spring bear is just an over the counter tag,does anybody know if this is true? I really have an itch to go hunting and can't wait until summer.
I couldn't find anything about when the season starts but there website does say a non resident lic is 141.50 a bear tag is 151.75 and a bait permit is 12.75. They do offer a reduced bear tag for 31.75 in the lolo,selway,middle fork units 10,12,16a,17,19,20 and 21. They also a turkey tag for 67.50 here is the link http://fishandgame.idaho.gov/cms/hunt/rules/bg/
Hinge-cutting serves several purposes in regard to improving both whitetail habitat and your hunting experience. There are two main types of hinge cuts including a cut for screening and funnels and a cut for bedding. Hinge cuts for screening and funnels should be done somewhere between the knee and waist to block a deer's vision as well as block a travel path. Hinge cuts for bedding should be done around chest high so that there is room for a deer to bed underneath.
