Howdy,

I am new to Idaho. I did not do well in the Draw, all I got was a 50-2 antelope tag. I know very little about the area. Any suggestions on where to begin would be appreciated. I also have to hunt an open deer hunt in south central Idaho any good ideas on that would be a great help.

Thanks!!

Man I thought you fell off the face of the earth. How the hell have you been?? As for 50-2 I know the area pretty well and I did see a pretty good buck up there a couple weeks ago. My daughter Kasi, (the one that had the buck tag last year) Has a September Bull tag for a rifle hunt this year :^)
I am excited to go. Give he a hollar I can help on the pronghorn hunt with some info. Ron

H2M...I might have to hit ya up for a spot or 2 in unit 50 as I got a 50X tag good for 2 whitetail bucks. I'm not real familiar with the area but have seen them around the Lost River and Trail Creek, mostly private there. I could goto the Dubois area but trying to stick closer to home.

MTRANCH, The whitetails in unit 50 are still kinda a novelty, but the herd is on the rise,you are right about the private property problem, but I would concentrate on the area west of the mackay dam, you can acess it on the fish hatchery road, and its just a matter of waiting for em to come out of the bottoms to the BLM, which they will do.I'll keep my eyes open.

Hunt2much,

I live between Buhl and Hagerman about 2 miles from the river. I work for Jerome County and I can go hunting when I want to!! If not I'll find a new job!! I appreciate your response. I have not been up that way to scout at all yet. Are there any decent goats up that way?

Idaho Ron Where the hell have you been? I thought maybe you had died in the recent past. How are the goats? Call or stop by or email.

Moosie- We have corresponded a bit.

I still need input for general deer. What are you gonna do Ron? I been thinking about 45 with a smokepole. What with the water thingb the way it is. Saw a couple a dandies out there this winter.

Thanks for all the responses.

lEET, As you were probably aware when you put in for a 50 goat tag , that the population is suffering, hence the reason for the tag reduction this year, and you drew on the toughest section of the unit :confused:
but I've seen two bucks in the 14" range, nothing real heavy, or with decent prongs , but still shooters in 50-2, concentrate on the area west of Arco -champange creek area, when you get ready, I'll give you some landowners names that might let you in, which is your best bet. H2M

lEET, I reread your post, and am curious about a 45 smokepole hunt(general) I drew 45-1 last year and had a ball, 45-3 is unlimited , but you still had to put in for it, where the heck ya talking about?

not that it's any of my business, but I don't want to miss out on any B/P hunts...

My copy of the regs is at the office, but last year they had a general muzzleloader hunt on the southern half of 45. It is mostly farmland. Maybe they have changed it this year, I did not pay any attention yet. If you are interested in going on that, if it is still there let me know. I will check and get back with you.

Thanks for the advice on 50. I intend to shoot a 45-70 with BP and cast bullets so it will make harder yet.

H2M, Do you know Mike Dodge, or David Keel?? I bet you know Dave Sil****.
I used to hunt up there a couple years ago with Pack Goats. I was kind of famous in Mackay. More than once I was treated to a round a Perks.

H2M, who did the mounts in the the gas station called sammys and the cenex in Mackay. The little bucks in the cenex are small deer but the taxidermist did a GREAT job on them. Ron
