I was in Sportsman's Warehouse this morning in Meridian and at that time they had not yet received their copies of the new regs. Said it'd probably be a few days.

We hunt deer in the Wood River valley quite a bit (unit 48). One of my partners has friends with the IDFG. They're saying that the fawn survival in that area this winter is zero. They didn't change the season, though. It won't affect the bigger buck numbers this year but there won't be any replacements for the future.

Could someone explain to me what they mean exactly by,
"Within 1 mile of private land"
Does that mean hunting on public (state,county and Federal) land with in 1 mile of any private land (including lumber company), or private land that you own or lease?

Usually it means ANY private land. Usually the idea is to harass the elk away from farm fields.
Give us a specific unit reference and I'll try to interpret what it means.

About 15 years ago it was fairly easy to draw an Idaho moose tag. Many units had odds as good as 1 in 3. I drew the 1st time I applied. It was just a year or 2 later when they changed it from 1 moose in a lifetime to 1 of each sex. I got my bull but haven't ever applied for my cow tag.

I have a friend, born and raised in Sagle, that needed 17 years for a panhandle tag. He drew five or so years ago and shot a nice one.

Idaho (at least use to) specify that the "large corporate timber lands" (or something to that effect) was not deemed "private" land when it came to some hunts up near Potlatch that were private land only hunts. If it does not specify that large timber company lands are excluded as "private" for the hunt you're referring to, I think you're OK. You may want to call IDFG though.

What specific hunt are you asking about?

I was looking at the difference between a A tag and a B tag in unit 1.
Why would someone want a B tag over a A?
Are elk tags other than control hunts OTC for residents?

I don't know much at all about unit 1, but elk tags are either OTC or a draw...for residents and non-residents. There's really not another option to distribute tags.

In some units/districts there are caps to the number of tags sold though, if that's what you mean.

The B tag gives more archery opportunity and the A tag gives more "any weapon" (rifle) opportunity. Luckily we don't have to choose a weapon in a lot of units. A guy can hunt archery, rifle, and muzzle loader all on one tag in some units. Idaho is more about quantity of opportunity than quality trophy units, for the good and bad.
I have a feeling a lot of cows are going to get killed this year.

Look at the hunt dates. A tags are more for archery and/or ML hunters. They'll give you a long bow or ML season and a short rifle season. B tags give you much longer rifle seasons.
The private land is any private land. You're going to need a land ownership map to figure out what's what. A lot of private land is forested and you can't tell it from public without a map. I suggest a GPS using the OnX map program for detailed boundaries.
Of course if you hunt outside of those date restrictions, you can hunt any public land.
