Default Idaho success

My son and I got word from our outfitter that his other hunters had left early so we could start hunting whenever we got to Idaho. We drove two FULL days and started hunting two days before our hunt was scheduled. I killed my bear on the second sit and Hunter had a very close encounter on his second sit (7 feet!) He killed his bear on his third sit. The remainder of our hunt was spent running hounds and sitting for a bigger bear. The weather turned bad and it was cold and rainy the last 5 days of the hunt. We saw tons of deer and Elk and bears. We walked through snow storms, hail storms and rain storms and enjoyed every second of it. This was the trip of a lifetime and not because we both killed bears. We got to see Mining camps and beautiful scenery every direction we looked. I cant wait to head back up there.

Weitas Creek Outfitters. His name is Gary Haight. He mainly caters to traditional shooters but he is very hospitable to Compound and gun hunters alike. Super nice guy and really goes the extra mile for his hunters. I'm booking an Elk hunt with him for 2021.

Congratulations on those two bears to you and your son. Those other hunters leaving early sure worked out for you guys. Deer and elk and bears, and one bear only 7 feet away. And all that in such beautiful country. Nice pics too, just an outstanding hunting trip. Thanks for sharing it with us.

That elk hunt sounds like it's going to be a great hunt.

Congrats on the bears! Sounds like an amazing hunt and overall experience.

I'm taking my son to ID next year for our first bear hunt. Narrowing down a short list of outfitters now, but had ruled Weitas Creek out due to the trad thing. Sounds like I should call him and talk it over anyway. We have 3 compound shooters and one pure rifle guy going. Thanks for posting your hunt. I may hit you up for some more details, if that would be ok. Nothing better than a TBH reference.

I looked up the outfitter and did not see anything on elk hunting. Is that not an option??

He does a very limited number of Elk Hunts.

We were not able to save the meat, but I've eaten it before. It's not bad at all.
The picture of the old building is actual the Golden Hotel. It was in an old gold mining town. There was a ton of history in the area we hunted. We saw several of Miner Camps that are still standing from the Late 1800's.
