Following our shed hunting theme, lets talk about Idaho Elk Hunts today.
Idaho Elk Hunts are similar to mule deer in that typically they winter many miles from their fall haunts.
Where elk are most unique is that they start shedding there antlers very late, from late March until early May.
This can make an exciting experience because when the Idaho Elk Hunts are dropping their sheds on the lower, southern facing ridges, bears are also emerging from their dens and looking to feed on the fresh vegetation that also is found in the same area. Since bear season coincides with this time period in most western states, the opportunity should not be overlooked to enjoy this very unique elk shed hunting/bear hunting experience.
