So a buddy and I are finally going to give Northern Idaho whiteys a try.Wanted to do this for a few years now and its time.Curious if any Idaho guys would care to pm with some answers to general questions.We have researched deer populations i.e. unit information regarding population of mature bucks etc. and have a general sense about good possibilities.I think the main question I have concerns terrain/growth.We would prefer hunting public land that has a mixture of timber and open ground.Obviously much of the N'atl forest is timber with possible clear cuts but given the climate I am guessing many clear cuts quickly fill in with undergrowth and are not as open as perceived.We have done well in Montana rattling bucks ,mostly river bottom hunting, so the notion of hunting thick timber is not out of the question but I think we would prefer to hunt an area that has a mixture of thick and open for the fun factor of possibly seeing deer before they are in your lap. Are we better off considering areas North of interstate 90 or possibly the fringe ground further south? I am inclined to search out Public land that has non-motorized roads we can get back on a good distance to separate from the masses.If anybody would care to share some info to help us in a general direction,it would be greatly appreciated.The only way we will really get an idea is to go for it,so I am anticipating it taking a few trips to figure things out.
