I just got back from a bike riding trip to CD, we stayed in Harrison. Very pretty place, lots of water. We saw deer, moose, turkeys and a few guys catching bass on the CD River. I have a friend who lives close to St Maries who is an avid hunter and owns about 80 acres. He has some pretty good success, but his main complain is folks on ATV's where they should not be. A fair amount of timber company land to hunt.

Some time spent scouting and getting to know the area should pay dividends. I see in your profile you fly fish, you will love the St Joe River and the North Fork of The CD.

elkken, yes I love to fly fish, trad bowhunter, watcher of wildlife and an avid cyclist and skier. I am looking forward to doing a lot more cycling which will help in the packing in past ATV fitness.

I'm jealous. Spent some time in the ID panhandle in my teens -- hiking, fishing, backpacking, etc. My grandfather was stationed at the old Naval station on Pond O'reille for a time, as I recall. Still some family up there. Great area for anybody who loves the outdoors.

X2 on the St. Joe -- at least 15 years ago, which was the last time I fished up there. A few miles in and you'll be forced to use a larger fly with a larger hook just so the little ones quit spooking the hole every time they go for your fly. Moose everywhere. Beautiful place. Enjoy!

As said in two posts earlier,
Xtreme North Idaho Trad club.
they are very active I ran into them at 3 shoots this summer and they seem to be an awesome group, organized and active in the sport.

Great location to live, close to Spokane, a large city in terms of the NW (hehe), yet you are remote and alone in the woods in just minutes.

good luck hope to run into you at a shoot next spring.

We lived in Bonners Ferry, ID for five years; which is about 45 minutes from Cour'delane. I was too young to hunt but my Dad killed two bull elk and several whitetails while there. Some very big whitetails in that little town! Wolves seem to be fairly numerous around there, as well as mountain lions and a fair population of grizzly in the mountains. Oh, did I forget; decent black bear population and more coyotes than you can shake a stick at. My cousin was squirrel hunting once when he heard something behind him and turned around to see a cougar following him! Dad was elk hunting with a friend and they had a grizzly run in on them while they were calling! Big muleys in the mountains, big whitetails in the valleys, plenty of elk, occasional moose; hunters paradise in God's country!

Thanks all for the posts. I am very excited to settle in and get mountain fit. Need to start applying for moose tags as well.
