    Idaho Hang/Hunt/Feast

    OK so it looks like my trip report has genarated a bit of intrest from a few to come on up this way for a get-together. So far Plowhourse and Gargoyle have said they would be in. Anybody else? For now we are looking at next fall as the possible time, I just looked through the game regulations and most zones are open for elk season in October and early November. For that time of year we would need to plan on frezzing conditions and a high likly hood of snow. But last year temps were still warm into late October. And the first real snow of the year was not untill late December, so anything could hapen.

    So any body else intersted in making the trip up for a fall group hang? The topic of steaks and brew was raised in my TR thread. So why not make this a feast. Many areas that we could pick to go would have good access from car, so taking a load of food and drink would not be a problem and then we could hike in further from there.

    So any questions, ideas, or more intrest?

    Frank Church would be cool, I have actually not spent much time up that way at all. And to get there we would be headed past the sawtooths and tones of other great areas as well, more my neighborhood as it were. So we could try to hit some of the scenic spots if there were time.

    Anybody else, even a maybe?

    I'd love to get an elk with my lefty Savage 110 30-06!

    I'll see if I can make it... need to know the date soon, though.

    MacEntyre, I will go by the sporting goods dept. in the next day or two and see if the 2010 regs are out yet. The 2010 fish regs have been marked as the same as 2009 so the hunt regs may stay the same as well. But I would think the earlier in October the better just as far as temps would go. There are lots of areas to chose from and the state is broken into so many hunting zones that one zone or another look like they are open almost every day from October 1 - mid November. Any time that works better?

    2010, I could be anywhere at that point. If I'm in Idaho (or in the general neighborhood) count me in. Cant pass up a steak dinner while hammock camping!

    what do you think paul, since cannibal is ok with it, all non hunters in the trip MUST agree to be porters?
