I have a question about terms used to describe the topography. I've been elk hunting in Idaho the last couple of years and have had some issues with understanding what some of the people we talk to are referring to when it comes to the areas to hunt. Coming from a flat part of the country I am unfamiliar with a lot of the mountain terms.
Could some of you describe some of the common lingo used to describe the mountainous terrain.
For example: craig, basin, cooly, etc.
There are a few others I cant remember. Hate to sound like an idiot but I feel like bigger idiot when I cant find elk due to a lack of basic knowledge.
