Hello all,
I'm looking at getting after the elk in Idaho again next year, and looking at exploring a new area. Hunted Lemhi last year, had fun, saw elk, but came home with nothing but tag soup.
The diamond creek area looks interesting, but from what I've read, its a long shot to get the tag before they're sold out. So my questions for now would be, is it REALLY that hard to get, where it might not be worth staying up until 1 a.m. to try and get one? And second, hows the hunting pressure? Gohunt shows about 1000 hunters surveyed last year for that zone. Im all about getting off roads and off trail, I prefer it actually. But will that get me away from people?
In short, is it worth trying for, or should I focus research elsewhere?
