Welcome to North Idaho. Stop in the Fish and Game office on Kathleen Avenue in Coeur d'Alene and they should be able to tell you some places to try.

Have a great season!

Good advice. If you hunt with Hayden Hunter make sure you bring a shovel :biggrin: .

I've been in your shoes. It feels insurmountable when you move to a new area. For what its worth, I went to the Idaho DFG website and started looking up where the Wildlife Management Areas are in my area and then wore out Google earth.

You will find that generally speaking there aren't the crowds that a lot of other places suffer with, especially if you're willing to walk a little further, or get your feet wet a little longer.

Wish I could help but I don't know your area, but I do know that the WMA pages on the Idaho DFG website were truly helpful for some of the basics.

Once you have done the above, its all about windshield time.... My binoculars never leave my side for the next 4 months..
