My son drew a tag for this unit this year. It is his first year hunting, and he is super excited. I have been on google earth studying the area and plan to scout it this weekend. I noticed the PAYETTE NATL FOREST area. Does anyone have any advice or tips that could help us in the area? I greatly appreciate any input. Thank you.

Go as close to the top as you can. Stay on the west side. Just listen for them they will do all of the rest of the help you will need. Be ready for miles of tough country.

They got it done opening day! I was able to show them around scouting and they did another scouting trip without me. They stopped by my house today to show off a fine 6 point bull the young man took. Congratulations to the 12 year old hunter on a fine bull and hopefully his dad will post a few pictures and a great story.

Generous people doing generous things really makes me smile. Good work D6native! I'm sure the young man will be forever grateful and now has a fine example of what the hunting community can be.

My son had a awesome hunt! Thanks to everyones help and especially D6native for taking the time to point us in the right direction. We planned on getting there a few days early but unfortunatly wasnt able to make it up untill the day before opening morning. We was able to glass the the main area d6native reccomended for about 1-1/2 hrs before sunset and spotted a couple of bulls. We got up early the next morning and went to the same area. His uncle spotted this bull about 2000 yards out. We put the sneak on him about 9 am with his other uncle still spotting the bull. The bull bedded down in an area so we decided to hold out. After hrs of waiting he poked his head out around 6 pm. We made a move to where his uncle said he was feeding to. The bull finaly showed himself out about 150 yards. When the time was right my son pulled the trigger and made the shot happen! I was a super proud father with an extremely excited son! We couldnt of made this happen if it wasnt for D6native, some scouting friends, and his uncles. Thanks for everyones imput on this hunt, helping my son get hooked on hunting and making some new friends! We appreciate all the help we got. Thanks again.
