    Recently relocated to Idaho from Texas, grew tired of the summers and terrible scenery.

    Looking to enjoy some hunting without having to get a land lease or drive out of state to have access to reasonable hunting. I enjoy archery and rifle hunting for deer and elk.

    I used to visit Texasbowhunters.com quite a bit and am looking for a new internet stomping grounds with like minded people. Hopefully this site will not turn into a hunting forum where 90% of the posts are not about hunting!

    Welcome, this site is still in its infancy and the more the merrier. I have family in Benbrook.

    Welcome good sir! You will quickly learn to appreciate all the public land Idaho has for hunting/fishing/mushroom collecting/firewood, and well you get the idea. Ive always felt bad for anyone PAYING to hunt. My cousin worked in Texas for a few years and came back to the West because of this(and the heat haha.)

    Agreed. Leasing hunting land is quite $$$ out there. You can buy multiple out of state elk tags here in ID for quite a bit less then a lease will go for. Not to mention there you are hunting out of a blind, which there are pro's and con's to but overall feels less like hunting then I prefer.

    No, blinds there run the gamut from run down shacks to essentially man caves in the sky with TV's, massive sound proofing, and plenty of beer.

    Yeah, they can get quite crazy. The latest fad was carbon fiber blinds with sound proofing, heating, and cooling. Don't get me wrong they can be fun especially when it is 90% and humid out, but overall I prefer to get out and after them.

    If you don't mind my asking where in Idaho are you? My dad and I are going to Filer, Idaho and then to the lower section of the snake in Idaho. My uncle lives in Filer and loves both bow and rifle hunting and is an excellent source of info on hunting there. He is an awesome hunting partner with good knowledge of the whole of Idaho.. He is very kind and welcoming and loves to meet new people with a good Texas BBQ.

    Sweet! My uncle is a bit of a nut. He has a insane man cave and boy do I mean insane. 20 or so deer, 10 ducks and geese, 1 or 2 bear, fish, and an elk or two. He is just plain nuts. He was burning a pile of brush and was joking with the firefighters about tossing one of his neighbors pigs on the top!
