Im kinda new here and sitting at work waiting for 8 more hours before I can hop in my jeep and head up to my huntin spot. Anyway I was up at my spot last weekend in between challis and stanley idaho and I found my herd and boy are they bugling already! 1 week before the season started! I didnt mean to get that close to them on a scouting trip but sometimes they just appear out of nowhere. We've got a little coldfront and storm coming in on sunday so hopefully that will give us guys and gals hunting idaho some early season action. Good luck to you all and safe hunting

Well - I do not know about early rut but I got a call from my brother - they were hunting Northeast Oregon - got a 6X6 today (September 1, 2008) - he said that this one came in screaming and was in full rut.

I hope they hold off just a little bit. I am hunting the St. Joe Area same days as ElkFanatic is hitting Stanley. Normally, they don't really get going until then but, it is normally hot & dry right now. They may go off earlier. I still think(hope) they will be screamin' when we're up there.

We saw 5 on opening morning in Unit 32A, all were still in full velvet. 4 spikes and 1 3x3. Usually they've shed their velvet by now, but these hadn't even started yet. Ended up taking home one of the spikes.
