In general when is the hot and heavey rut start for elk in Idaho? Is it around the second or third week of september or are they a little later. I am going to try and bow hunt them and need to have an idea of when to take time off to try and get on one. Thanks for all the help.
Mac, I think your pretty close on your dates, but if you put this question up in the Big Game Forum, there some homeboys from Idaho that wrote the book on elk hunting and there always more than eager to share there experience. Good Luck.
