i plan on traveling to idaho in a few months to visit my dad and I was wanting to do a little hunting while there..anyone have any idea, i would like to use my rifle(270) but can use my bow also...i have about 1500 to spend max
When are you going to be in Idaho, during the spring or fall? If it is in a few months as you say, you might be there during the spring bear season, which is mid April through the end of June.
$1500 is a pretty limited budget, a spring bear hunt with us runs $1800 for a 5 day hunt, with the tag costing just over $150, so we could get you close to your budget.
If you are going to be there in the fall, drop camp hunts run around $2000 for archery or rifle bear, elk, and deer. You could do a muzzleloader cow elk for $1500, but that is close as we could get to your budget.
Let me know if you'd like more info. Good luck finding a hunt and have a great visit with your father.
Over the years I have seen several elk and deer hides left in the woods by hunters and I have to wonder why they do this? I fully understand and agree about getting the hide off the animal as soon as possible to cool the meat, but why not pack out the hide with you and use it? As far as I know there are no state laws that require you to take the hide home, but to me why waste such a beautiful part of the animal? Some might think they have no use for the hide or it costs too much to tan....
