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.
Hunting is not usually a pursuit where instant gratification abounds. It takes a lot of time, practice, resources and patience to be a successful hunter. So when someone decides that an area they hunted only once without taking an animal is worthless and devoid of game, I don't quite understand it. These people usually jump from game management unit to game management unit; trying a new one every year.
Now don't get me wrong, there are people that just enjoy scouting and hunting...
