Idaho Whitetail Area for my 12 year old son

I have never hunted in Idaho, nor have I hunted whitetails, but I'm looking for a good area to take my 12 year old son. I have been looking at areas 18, 14, 13, 11A, 10A, 8 and 11. Does anyone have any advise on which unit would be best to take a 12 year old boy? What about private land, is it difficult to get permission to hunt in these units?

Thanks for any help I can get!

One of my son's just moved from Lenore Id. . I know there is a place up Jacks Creek that is nice to hunt and is a FREE to Hunt area . To get there you go up Summit Grade off hiway 12 at Lenore .
I also have a son that lives in Troy and hunts unite 8 & 8A , does pretty good there too.
Good Luck to you and your son . Nothing like being there when your son or daughter makes their first kill.

8 and 8A. Latah county. Lots of public land that is awesome to hunt. I scored a 160 class buck last year off of some public ground.

A smart move for any gmu you hunt is to find the county seat and get property ownership maps. for latah county (8 and 8a) it is moscow, Id.
