    Hunting elk in "steep" country

    Yep, My Dad's 88 and although he was never much of a hunter, he still works on his old cars and tractor. Had the engine out last time I was down to visit.

    Something to commemorate passing hunters ed?

    We also have some Crickets for the smaller kids. The Americans are full size and your son will be able to use it his whole life and if he isn't real small, he should be fine. Ours are the regular size, not the compact.

    Just FYI, we have Ruger American 22's for our youth program at the local club. They make and we got single round magazines for them. Essentially making them single shot 22's. Safer for training IMO. The mags are the same as 10-22's.

    Getting an elk out has always been my biggest concern also. At 67 yrs old I have to know my limitations and try to hunt accordingly. I have managed to get my elk out by myself the last two years (thank you EXO) but who knows the future. I know a guy local who has horses and has said he would...

    I just got a hunting license when I passed (50 some odd years ago) Maybe frame it (then buy a duplicate for use)

    Sounds like a phone issue to me. The Garmin has an Onyx chip installed in it. Don't know if that's possible on a phone. It is just a memory chip.

    I don't know your son's age or experience but I would only take someone new to a location I had first hand experience in. Lest you both be disappointed.

    I truck camp sometimes even when I could be home in an hour just for the extra sleep. And I like being out in the woods.

    Idaho potential nonresident fee increase

    From tag price increase to local cops writing tickets? What a rabbit hole.

    My understanding is onyx is a map service, not a GPS. If you have issue with tracking or compass, it's your device not the map. I did have problems with the compass in the Garmin but it was caused by the magnetic closer in my bino harness. Ditched that and no more compass issues.

    Idaho potential nonresident fee increase

    It is legal to carry a weapon on an ATV, even a rifle with an empty chamber. Car, truck, whatever. Road closures are a Federal regulation, not a State one. There are special motorized vehicle regs in some areas. And maybe that could be a problem.

    Idaho potential nonresident fee increase

    Read the proposal. As for ATV's, they aren't really the wardens issue, that would be USFS. And lighted nocks, expandable BH and lighted bowsights are just not allowed and nothing to do with res/ NR issue.
