New hunter to north idaho. Hello!

Hello all my name is cory and I am a new transplant to coeur d alene. New hunter hailing from ohio. Made a move for work to get out west and see what it has to offer. Really a huge hunter and fisherman mostly for whitetail and turkey back home. Looking to possible latch onto some buddies to learn the ropes out west. I hunt both with a bow and a gun and any and all information or tips would be appreciated! It is much different than sitting in a tree all day waiting for one to walk by what can I catch what can I shoot! Thanks to all in advance. Have a great new year

Welcome to the site!  Lots of good info on here, and I believe a couple of the regulars have some experience in Idaho.  What part of Ohio are you transplanting from?  I attended college there.

Welcome to the site, nice to

Welcome to the site, nice to see some new blood. I have hunted in the McCall area of Idaho but not as far north as you are. It has been in the Frank Church Wilderness and have done well but it is not easy hunting that is for sure. Steep mountains and lots of area to cover and being a wilderness it is all on foot or horse back. Cannot help you on the fishing but I have heard Lake Coeur d' Alene has great pike trout and salmon fishing.

Welcome

Welcome to BGH. I'm from East Idaho but I have been through the Courdelene area a few times. Beautiful country up there and supposedly great fishing and hunting. Rumors I heard were that the elk hunting has went down hill due to the amount of wolves up there. That may be true, I don't know. But on the bright side you can hunt wolves and trap them up there. Get out and talk to the locals is your best bet good luck and have fun. You'll fall in love with that country up there.

I have seen some elk lots of whitetail. I would love to throw some lead at a wolf. The country is great here I love it. Did some exploring in the st. Joes region. Awesome place. Are their any mulies around cda? I'd really love one of those too. :)

Mules

Mulies are pretty much all over the rockies. I don't know that area well to tell you where but I'm sure there is some around. Talk to some one at the local hunting store and I'm sure they can fill you in.

Welcome to the forum. I

Welcome to the forum. I recently moved across the border over by Missoula and you should be in some great country. I bet deer,  bear, and turkey hunting will be great in northern ID. I'm in the learning process of scouting out new areas to hunt/fish.
