timba, they have this hunt every year. usually end of september, beginning of october. main thing you have to do is get your license the first of december. this year, they were sold out by the 17th of december. they have it in idaho, and they have everything there and set up when you show up.
not sure I can help with the wife part as mine usually asks if I can leave sooner than planned. never have figured out what she means by that?
but now, she is going on my trips with me. makes it more fun and I get better pictures that way.
