Thank you. If you and your boy ever make it out this way again let me know, I'd love to go wander through the diamond creel elk woods with you and help you pack something out.This is really awesome. Congrats. Very inspirational story.
I connected with your story a few levels. My Dad is 73 and has been showing early signs of Dementia for last several years. Aricept seems to be keeping it at bay for past year, for that I'm grateful.
I hunted Diamond Creek for the OTC archery season (4) times from 2007-2011. Some of the best hunting memories of my life. So I've only spent 4 weeks of my life in that area, but I can totally get your love of the land. Wish I didn't have to drive 1900 miles to get there, lol! Kids came along and I haven't been able to get back unfortunately.
I also have an 11 year old who is an up and comer hunter, having shot several deer and turkey already. A few more years for him to mature a little and I'm hoping to get back in the Elk game with him. Wish Diamond Creek archery was like the old days when you could get an OTC tag in August.

Rexburg is going to be quite a ways out of the way of this area, unless you're heading North. I know there are some in Afton I can't make any recommendations, because we do all of our own processing.Can anyone recommend a good game processor for this area?
I see Woodcock Custom Meat (W, Rexburg, ID) has the best reviews. The rest scare me.....
Thanks in advance
I'm glad to hear another Hunt Talker drew an Idaho Moose tag. Maybe one of these years someone in my house will be able to draw one. Have you figured out when you're going to hunt for yours?Great write up and congrats on the quality time and hunts with the kids, and first rate storytelling . Stellar stuff.
Just scouted a different area of SE Idaho for moose 4 days last weekend and loved it. Beautiful country.
