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.
Wind is one of the most crucial variables in any kind of big game hunting. It helps level the playing field between a hunter with a scoped rifle and the game animals being hunted. This is not novel information. Any hunter who has consistent success in the field knows this. I have tried a couple different techniques for keeping track of the wind. Here are a couple.
The most simple and obvious is to just stay cognizant of it. It is amazing how slight of a breeze you can sense if you just pay...
