Idaho vs BCContributors to this thread:
If you had an option to hunt lions in NW Idaho or BC where would you choose and why? For simplicity we will say the price, length of hunt etc. are apples to apples.
Great cats in both places. To me it would come down to the area and/or outfitter you are going to. Assuming you are going outfitter call as many references you can and get the skinny from those who were successful and those who were not. To me that dictates it. I went the Idaho route on mine and wasnt disappointed
Both supply great hound hunting... but BC would typically allow you to add Lynx and Wolf if you are in the right area and right outfitter.
Idaho we were able to add bobcat and wolf as well. Don't know rate differences with those other species. Maybe higher in BC would be my guess
B.C. means bring cash
BC. I would also suggest Alberta even though it wasn't on your list. :)
Bowfiinatic.... Yes you can add bobcat and wolf. Do you know what the chances are on a wolf in Idaho during a lion hunt? Can they bait them?? Who did you hunt with in Idaho?
Depends on where in Idaho if in the northern part you will not likely get a wolf. We have lots but I have only seen one from several hundred yards and he was in the run.
I don't know the odds on wolf but probably not high. BC probably a higher success rate chance at wolf We did find a fresh wolf kill the day I was leaving, if i could have stayed would have had a good chance at one
