    I would get all the info you can on wolf populations in the areas you plan to hunt. There were good elk numbers in the pan handle a few years ago but I dont know what has happened since. I was going to scout and hunt it this year but I drew an antelope tag in NV! DO you have a general idea of where you want to hunt in it?

    If you have any troubles finding the numbers of elk that you are looking for check out unit 6 south of where you will be, on the south side of the Saint Joe River, Warning there is a large pack of wolves in the marble creek country or atleast there was last year, but it is still good hunting.

    You might want to get ahold of the Bio for that area and get some advise from them. Wolves can be a big issue

    we got wolves, but not as bad as this forum wants them to be. Have good raingear, be prepared to not see more than 15 yards and welcome to the very wet jungle of north Idaho. We are not arid,open or dry. We are wet, closed in and wet. The jungles of north Idaho have a lot of elk, which live in very steep wet jungles. No easy desert hunting here.
