we're doing good so far in my group.  Found several bands of mountain goats so far for the one guy who drew the tag, we have our elk and deer scouting done, now it's just scouting for fun.  Saw over 75 elk two weeks ago during an 8 hour horse ride through our hunt area.

Scouting

I was up in GMU 17 last month looking for Moose. Did not get quit to where I was going due to the snow. However we did see about 60 head of elk and about 20 whitetails. All in all it was a good trip however in Idaho guess you need to wait till July so you can make it up where the snow has melted.
