Unit 41 Idaho Late Season Buck

Recommended Posts

Anyone hunt SW Idaho? I had a horrible hunt this year in unit 41 during the late season. Anyone know if it was just a bad year? I wasted a lot of money on that hunt. Biologist said numbers were way down for this year. My question is why is it a controlled hunt then?

In my experience any entity that manages game, is not agile.

I had an out of state hunt in Montana for antelope several years ago and it happened to be the fall after a horrendous spring snow.

That spring snow killed an estimated 60% of all the antelope in that section of Montana but no DNR said a damn word about it. They wanted those out-of-state fees. It was very difficult hunting.

So one of the things that I do now is I pay attention to the weather wherever I’m going to hunt in the spring and summer to find out what it might be like in the fall.

Perhaps that might be where your answer lies. Disease? A hard winter? A drought in the summer?

You will never get proper management decision of any federal government or state agency in a matter
But I am curious, so if you ever find out please let us know.
