I am going to archery hunt for elk next year. Does anyone have any good tips for units to put in for? I was looking at 22, 32A, 17, etc. but would like some people who normal hunt those units to possible give me some tips. Thanks for the help!!!!
Have you looked at the harvest statistics for units in Idaho. These can be very helpful when you are deciding which area is right for you. You can easily compare harvest success and trophy potential for each unit, then look at the actual statistics.
As I sit and glass, which is common for hunters out west, I have sort of quickly discovered something I never learned when I was younger.
In my youth I had enthusiasm and spirit. In my middle to advancing years I have creaky knees, arthritis, and I tire more easily than I used to. Where I used to sit on the cold hard ground I now look for that soft spot to sooth my tired muscles. That leads me to my tip.
Carry your soft spot with you!
In my pack I carry an air filled, ultralight, camping pad....
