Idaho Early Elk Season Opens August 1st

I might just do it! Rifle is dialed in. Game bags, backpack, stuff, etc. are already in the rig, ready. Got a place in mind. Now all I need to decide is whether or not I really want that tag, because once I pick a zone, that's the (only) zone the tag is good for. I'd like it better if the tag were more `universal' - as there are some other places I'd like to hunt, also.

Idaho Early Elk Season Opens August 1st

I debated buying the early rifle tag for weeks and did... but I'm seconding my decision. I took a PT job working for a farmer "in the desert" and would see a pretty good number of elk around dusk comming in to feed on the hay and potato fields all summer long. Opening weekend, my friend shot a 6x6 and 3 other hunters shot the other 3 big bulls I had my eye on.

I've been hunting the area where I saw elk every day for the past 4 weeks and havent seen one. They moved somewhere, just dont know where. I've seen some big antelope thou.

the good thing is... the hunt goes till Dec 31 and as I would have liked to take one of the bigger 300+ bulls I saw early on, I am hunting to fill the freezer so I might just quit and wait till the snow flies, load up the sled and venture out later on in the year.

Anyone else buy the early Elk tag??? Any luck???
