Rifle season starts Wednesday.


If this year’s rifle season is anything like our bow season St. Joe Valley area hunters are in for a treat come Oct. 10.

While cow season is limited to special controlled permits, and only in certain areas, bull elk seem to be plentiful in much of the Panhandle Region, which includes the St. Joe Valley. General deer rifle season opens in several units in the Panhandle. Last year’s mild winter made for healthy deer population.

Yes, any hunters will tell you, the one of the best things about living in St. Maries is October.
