What do you mean when you say northern idaho, what towns etc?

Not too much that I know of to successfully shoot in N.Idaho. Montana (3-4 hours has more, and you could even hit wildeyes if you shoot captives - I dont, but many many people go there from all across the nation). There are some areas that have some great whitetails, but I dont know of them anymore, they change over time and I've not shot there in years.

If I were going to be in NIdaho, I'd check out the
Kootenai National Wildlife Refuge near Bonner. . .

Hi,

Tony's question seems right on the money. Where in Northern Idaho are you going to be traveling? I have read several pieces on wolves in Northern Idaho while working on my newsletters. I did a quick google search and found a few on them. As to other big critters, like Bison/Elk/Moose, I am not really sure.

Here are some links about wolves. The first link is a bit older. The 2nd link though, which talks about wolf management seems to corroborate some of the data though.
