Idaho Elk Hunt Report by Ron Hicks

Hunter: Ron Hicks
Date: September 15, 2020
Trip Taken: Idaho Wilderness Elk Hunt
Consultant: Patrick Kissel  | OUTDOORS INTERNATIONAL

Impact to elk numbers by wolf depredation in the Idaho Wilderness is significant, down by 85% by some estimates. This is not a trip to expect to see large numbers of elk. However, the outfitter was flexible and willing to modify trip to adapt to changing circumstances and elk population to maximize limited opportunities. He is extremely knowledgeable of the hunting area and able/willing to adapt to changing conditions. With a 30+ year history, he is very organized.

Patrick’s communication before, during and after the trip was not an issue. He was very knowledgeable, and a pleasure to talk to.
