The majestic elk population in Idaho remains plentiful, and the backcountry is a true sportsmen’s paradise. The Idaho Fish and Game works diligently to manage the elk population in our great state of Idaho so that sportsmen will continue to have the highest quality hunting opportunities. The hunter success rate has not changed much over the last two decades, which is a clear sign that the effort put forth by the Idaho Fish and Game, landowners and managers to maintain a healthy elk population is working.
