A buddy of mine just bought a cabin and few acres near Kethum/Sun Valley, Idaho. His idea was to have a base from which he and his buddies (including me) can hunt and fish while his wife skis. Was this a good plan or is this area too far away from good big game hunting? I am a whitetail hunter (bow and gun) but have always dreamed of taking an elk, moose and/or black bear. Can we get to this within a reasonable driving time of Kethum? Also how about upland game, coyote or other game?
Also, are tags hard and/or expensive to get? I would appreciate the perspective of anyone who knows this area and Idaho in general. Thanks.
