Truck is loaded and getting ready to go, 1200 miles is a long haul. It’s just me and the son. Should be an awesome trip. We are after anything that moves. We have tags for Elk,Deer,Bear,Wolf or a Lion. Might even do a little fishing. I will try to do a few updates along the way but phone service is going to be spotty at best.

No we are hunting 36A. We have never been to Idaho so we are just flying blind. We have few spots picked out but you never know till you get there.

36A is some beautiful country. Probably hear some wolves at night, if you are near any elk. The deer herd is slowly recovering. Some sheep and mtn goats in that country also.

That's funny because my dad (brokeno) and I took off from DFW on our trip and also stopped for the night in Rocksprings. That was the town where we just couldn't drive any more.

Good luck!

Made it back to town today. Lots of country here. The first place we went to looked like a Elk Hunting Convention had broken out.

If you get a chance stop into Sun Valley, ID. It's where Demi Moore lives and I've seen her a few times in the local stores.

Oh and good luck hunting !
