My name is Rick,
I grew up in Caldwell, ID not far from Boise. There I spent many years hunting the foothills with my Dad for mullies and the areas above Emmett for Elk. In 2002 I joined the Army and from there I spent two years learning Korean in Monterey California, in 2004 I spent 6 months in San Angelo Texas doing some training and in January 2005 I deployed out of Ft Lewis Washington with 1st Brigade 25th Infantry Division. Currently I'm in Mosul, Iraq, but our Brigade is slotted to return to Ft Lewis the first week of October. I can't wait to get into the mountains in Washington. To my knowledge Washington has an even greater elk population than Idaho, as you can imagine, to an avid elk hunter this is GREAT news.
